Mauna Kea

Summited Jul 31, 2015

The tallest mountain in the world, over 10,000m from the base (under water).
Following Maunakea Trail and coming down following the road (longer but easier - very boring). Total ascent of 1500m. Plenty of stops on the way up to avoid altitude sickens as starting point for the climb (car travel) is at sea level in the morning (Hilo). Perfect weather and view from the top. I did not climbed actual peak ( 5min walk) as a sign of the respect to Hawaiian people (big sign before summit) but reached top of the road to highest telescope which has the same altitude.

Approach from the South side with help of cable car(s) and chair lift to new barrels. Summit day without help of snow cats. Descent to the North side travelling over glacier with wild and unspoilt scenery definitely worth extra money and extra physical effort.
