Ascent Trip Report

I rented a Jeep from "Lanai Mikey" and he wanted to go along if I wanted to go to the top. It probably is a good thing since it rained and it got unbelievably slippery so much so that we turned back. This was two days prior and by now it was bone dry until the very top. He left town but let me take it again since he had driven with me and I took it almost to the top. I stopped at the big communication tower and walked the rest of the way since it was still muddy and narrow. Probably no more than a mile. The road goes right over the top. Some views between the bushes but typical tropical foliage which was pretty thick. I think his number is 808-565-7373
