Must get permission from Mountain Club of Kenya:


Variety of shaded and exposed areas. Crags at the base of the hill have more vegetation. Mostly trad routes, but access to top makes top-rope an option too. Mountain Club of Kenya owns the land, grants access for non-members, & has guide-books available.

On the other side of the trad routes are some awesome sport routes and hard boulder problems tucked behind a boarding school and farm.
