Hidden behind the tint are five males who while born on Pohnpei were stripped of the title "ohl in Pohnpei" for driving up while the women were forced to walk up. 

The weaker boys of Pohnpei drove up while a Mwoakillese fellow, a Kosraean woman, an Woleaian women, and man from Dioan, and a true lien Pohnpei from Wene/Nanmand walked up the mountain.
