Po'o Nia (Bolohead) Ridge Conquered

Kaleo Lancaster and company have established a route to/from the apex of the Waianae Range (aka Mauna Kaala) via Bolohead Ridge, so christened by Waianae Steve Rohrmayr because of a extreme rockface on this "trail" that appears like the head of a hairless man. Perhaps this trail/route might be called Po'o Nia Ridge (the Hawaiian translation for bald head).

Whatever the case, Bolohead/Po'o Nia has been done as documented by David Chatsuthiphan at Unreal Hawaii.

The pic at left (taken by Nate Rubio) is Kaleo climbing Po'o Nia.

Congrats and good work, people!
