Tantalus Ride

It was a great day to climb Tantalus. Gil was our fearless leader. He was nice enough to let us join his secret training course, which consists of climbing up two ridgelines and finish off with Tantalus.
I got a good shot Gil and Linsey coming over the back side of heartbreak hill and on to our second ridgeline in Hawaii Kai

This Linsey making it to the top of our first ridgline, called Kamehame. The average gradient is suppose to be about 9%.

The second ridgeline is called Waialae Iki, with an average grade of 4.5%. Here is a good view from the top.

Here we are heading up Tantalus. These guys were going so fast they were a blur! The forest is so beautiful up there. The climb is a total of 4.5 miles and average grade of about 7%
