Volcano Climbing, Hawaii: Diamond Head

A switchbacking trail, a series of steep concrete steps, a tunnel blasted through rock, and a metal spiral staircase comprise the trail to the top of Lēʻahi ("brow of the tuna"), a volcanic tuff cone better known as Diamond Head. The view westward from the summit, 760 feet above the waves, extends over Kapiolani Park to the towers along Waikiki Beach.
