Raemaru, Rarotonga

This is the view looking northeast from Raemaru, the flat topped mountain of Rarotonga.

It's flat because the neighboring islanders of Aitutaki wanted a mountain, snuck up on a raid, and cleaved the top bit of Raemaru with their spears. Carrying it back, they were confronted by Rarotongans - and fought them off one-handed while supporting their stolen mountain with their spears. Fierce!

Then again, it might just be geology.
