Spinel lherzolite mantellic xenolithic nodules in nepheline basalts.

The range’s most characteristic feature is a serrated precipice, the pali (“cliff”), that rises abruptly on its eastern side and reaches varying heights (500 to 2,500 feet [150 to 750 metres]) 2 miles (3 km) from the sea. The highest point in the range is Konahuanui, which is actually two peaks (3,150 feet and 3,105 feet [960 metres and 946 metres]) and lies at the head of the Nuuanu Valley. Two cliff passes — Nuuanu and Waimanalo palis — cut through the range, they are pierced by highway tunnels.
