Climbing Mauna Kea, Hawaii

On 10 February 2014, Eric Hodge and I climbed Mauna Kea, the highest mountain in Hawaii. The summit is 13,796 feet / 4,205 metres above sea-level, and the mountain is not only the sixth highest of the 50 US state highpoints, but – because it rises almost 32,000 feet from the Pacific Ocean floor – Mauna Kea is frequently also referred to as the world’s “tallest” mountain.
