'Tie recollection of QUALITY rtmaint

Trada Mmrk ftgiUrcd (' i'immtmt
One of the interesting things to
which the attention of the passer by
is directed is the hole through the
mountain at Kalalea. Myriads of
people have gazed up at it from the
road below and wondered how big it
was, and how long, and whether it
was possible to get up there, but very
few have satisfied their curiosity by
making the attempt and seeing for
Cant Make It from Makal
The natural Impulse is to make the
ascent from the government road
makal, up the front face, but this is
impossible; the approach is very
steep and shaly, and the final pull is
a sheer precipice of 60 or 60 feet.
The Heleloas try It from Mauka
Satisfied of the futility of this line
of attack the Hul Hele Loas to the
number of 20 made the ascent from
the mauka side last Saturday without
much difficulty. Leaving the road
near the bridge at Anahola they climb
ed out of the valley onto the upland,
and then skirted round the flank of
the mountain range, gradually working
up, for a couple of miles or so until
they were just under where the Hole
ought to be. It was a long hard
fight with lantana, and the advance
guard had to do a lot of hard work cut
ting and beating out the trail. It
took about two hours, and everyone
was glad when they had made the
last steep ascent to where the Hole
was. But it wasn't there! Instead
there was a narrow, deep gap in the
ridge, guarded by high pinnacles, one
on each side. The hole was some
A Big Hole Hard to Find
A search party was sent out to find
it, and they finally reported that it
must be around the other side of the
next shoulder. Skirting the same
with some difficulty, and most uncer
tain footing, the party came to an
other similar gap, but no sign of the
hole. Finally when they were about
ready to give it up, and declare that
there was no such hole, it had evapor
ated, they stumbled upon it, within a
It proved to be about 20 or 25 feet
wide and 10 or 12 feet high and per
haps 25 or 30 feet long. While there
is an accessible slope on the mauka
side, on the makai it is precipitous
for 40 or 50 feet.
The Place to see Things
The view was magnificent. On the
makai side it overlooked the whole
Moloaa region with the interesting
sea-shore, and the wide sweep of sea
beyond, while on the mauka the whole
stretch of plain and mountain all the
way to Koloa gap and the Haupu
Range was Bpread out, together with
a lot of back country not generally
known between the Kapahi mountains
and the Koolau range.
A Perilous Descent
The lady with a pocket kodak hav
ing snapped the party against the
background of the Hole, they began to
cast about for means of descent. No
one wanted to go back over the long,
weary, lantana trail, and the road be
low them looked so near. Planning
on this descent the leader had provi
ded himself with 100 feet of light
rope. Speculating on the best line of
descent, they settled on what seemed
the most feasible one and Percy Lyd
gate led the way vith the line tied
around his waist. Carefully feeling
1 : way and teitin every protuber
ance of shaly rock to make sure . of
its strength, while strong arms above
lowered away slowly he made the
sloping ground below. Richard Slog
get t followed in the same way, and
then Miss Alma Barker.
They were moments of suspense,
while each one hung against the wall,
and there were 17 more to come!
The leader felt that the risk was too
great, that out of so many a serious
accident might happen that might
even become a tragedy. He declined
to take the responsibility and advised
that they go back to the other place,
which looked better, or, if need be,
return by the way they had come.
All were disappointed but agreed that
it was the only safe course.
Cowering Them Down, One by One
Careful examination showed that
the other way was much easier, and
much safer. The distance was short
er, and the helps in the way of pro
jecting ledges and footing stones were
better. The process of lowering be
gan at once nd it took about an hour
to lower the crowd, one by one, with
many nervous outcries, and many ad
jurations to hang on, and lower easy,
and bold back, and many ejacultaions
of relief when the ground below was
reached. Finally only the leader was
left, with of course nobody to lower
him. He reeved the rope round a
big rock and then went down, hand,
over hand, on the double rope. At
the bottom he expected to let go on
end and pull the rope down by tha
other end. But this wouldn't work;
it wouldn't reeve round the rock. So
ho climbed back as far as he could
go and cut the line, leaving moat of
it there for the next party to use.

Helter-skelter down the Lantana Slope
From there down it was a steep,
slidy climb, with more and more lan
tana to fight, and facing a cold north
erly rain that soaked everyone to the
skin. Wet and cold and hungry they
finally reached the road where the
cars and the lunch were awaiting
them. Like the Israelites leaving

'too wet and cold to sit down, then
