A powerful storm passed over the island of Oahu on 2/14/2015 which caused significant damage to the stairway, rendering them unusable. After the storm damage, five hikers got stuck on the east side of the mountain's ridge and were trapped overnight and had to be rescued.

Hello all,

I'll be in Honolulu May 31st-June 3rd. Anyone interested in going up either June 1 or 2? I'm alone and would love some company. I've heard of the back door route to avoid getting caught. If anyone is interested or if I can tag along, kind email me at lcasino77@gmail.com

Thank you.

I'll be taking this trail for the first time on Sunday morning 5/24 as early as possible. Anyone interested in joining can email me at mmrozelle @ gmail. com

I am alone, but have been talking to a few individuals on here that may be joining me already. Let's do it! (I plan on taking the long, "back route" to get there and avoid security.

Wondering if this place is actually "closed". Really have a desire to hike this beautiful place and will be in the area from the 20th-29th so if anyone would like to trek up this beauty with me and a few people, don't hesitate to ask.
