Hiking Bolohead Ridge on May 5th, May 8th, and August 14th, 2011 on Oahu, Hawaii. This exclusive video is a compilation of footage collected from three separate day scouts on a spur ridge connecting from Waianae Valley to Oahu's highest mountain peak, Mount Ka'ala (elev. 4,025 ft.). Bolohead Ridge was named by Steve Rohrmayr because of a prominent ridge feature resembling a face with a bald head. In recent memory, no one has completed the ascent or descent of Bolohead Ridge to or from Mount Ka'ala. It was scouted by Steve Rorhmayr (waianaecrider.com) and Dayle Turner (.hawaii.edu/~turner/ohe/ohe.html) in 2001. The ridge features very narrow ridge sections, extremely steep grades over loose dirt and crumbly rock, and is only trodded on by pigs and goats. It is one of six known routes to Mount Ka'ala, the five others being the Dupont Trail, the summit ridge from Pu'u Kalena, the Kama'ohanui trail, the Waianae-Ka'ala trail, and the summit ridge from Three Corners. A big thanks to those who were invloved on the three long days: Lei Yamasaki, Brian Bautista, Keith Mahon, Christina Delima, Jason Nakasato, Albert Carcueva, Kale Tulang, and Nate Rubio.
