Ipu o Lono is the name given to the pōhaku in a 1977 article in the Windward Sun Press, which also published an image of a stone 4-5 feet high at this spot. What happened to it is a mystery. Only a small remnant remains on a curbed earth platform. I remember the large stone at this spot from my childhood, when we made trips across the mountain on the old Pali Road. One was not supposed to bring pork past this stone at midnight. The stone was known to everyone in Kailua.
