Made it almost all the way to the K2 summit on 7/4 but it was pretty cloudy and a few of us didn’t feel comfortable making the last climb of the hike. The whole thing was really pretty but definitely some slippery spots - the trail did give way on one of the really narrow parts and I took a tumble about five feet down the side of the mountain but was able to dig my fingers in and stop myself. If you’re going to hike in Hawaii, don’t wear tennis shoes. Everything is muddy. I immediately ordered real hiking shoes and have been fine ever since.
