Taking you up the Stairway to Heaven...possibly for the last time ⛰😳. The Haiku Stairs on Oahu, Hawaii, amidst the lush Koolau mountain range, has almost 4,000 vertical steps that brings you high into the clouds. I did this incredible hike for the first time 2 years ago and to date it’s still the best outdoor experience I’ve ever had! However, the #StairwayToHeaven is a hot topic right now as it’s days could well be numbered. On August 7th a decision will be made to either shut them down or pass ownership over to the parks & recreation department of Hawaii, to manage as an official tourist attraction. Praying for the latter! This has been a huge debate on the island for years and it’s great to see the Mayor of Hawaii trying to find a positive solution that’s legal, sustainable and good for the community. Knowing all of this, I challenged myself to come up with something original, the goal to share a perspective that has never been seen before as a possible goodbye ☹️. Here’s the 1st attempt, a 360 perspective of the grueling vertical climb 💪🏽. The 2nd attempt will be coming soon as myself & @nicolas_gaillard teamed up to create a FPV aerial perspective that should blow your mind, so excited about that footage! To ensure we nailed the shots we spent a full 24hours executing everything. That included hiking up & down the stairs twice, then sprinting up & down it twice as well as camping at the summit in the satellite bunker (only slept for 30 minutes 😩). We got so lucky with the conditions allowing us to capture the stairs in all of its glory; sunrise, sunset, clear skies, rain, sun, fog & empty! Huge thank you to the squad for helping out and getting us up safely @storyofsage, @kelsealoha, @shnooz & of course @nicolas_gaillard. It’s important to note that there is a legal way of getting to the summit. Referred to as the “back way” it’s a 5-7hr ridge line hike (up & down) that we did and I’d highly recommend. Safe, legal & beautiful! Fingers crossed for a positive outcome next month as this is something that should be on everyone’s bucket list! 🤞🏽. As always, great vibes in #Hawaii 🤙🏽.
