The winding trail ends and turns into this stright climb followed by 99 steps to the top.

Here's the view looking back into the crater.  You can see the tunnel in the distance. We're almost to the top. Bill on the circular spiral staircase. Bill takes the final steps to the top. He's at the top of the crater's peak. The view of Waikiki from the top of Diamond Head.
There's a lighthouse on the coast below the crater's rim. Larry and Bill at the top. From the top looking east. Bill and the view of Waikiki.  Note the flat cement platform on the ridge to the right. Looking to the north of that cement platform, you can see the homes built on the hillsides above Waikiki. The view if you look further to the north.
