Ascent Trip Report210 feet of gain climbing the "wooded" relic cone and about 40 feet of add gain each way on a 2.5 mile RT. This is an interesting trip if you want to see what very recent devastation from an eruption can do. The eruptions began in 1969 and lasted to 1974 devouring and filling in several deep existing caters.
The eruption came from nearby Pu'u Ulu and the floows surrounded this pre-existing volcanic cone but never destroyed it. Thus from the summit you can see the extent of destruction from Pu'u Ulu. The flows flowed all the way to the sea and created several acres of "new" Hawaiian land"
