Description

Kenya is blessed with an enormous amount and variety of rock, incredible wildlife, and storied climbing history. This makes it a perfectly unique destination for anyone looking for adventure climbing of all sorts in remote and beautiful settings.

From roadside crags near Nairobi to unclimbed big-walls in the north to the alpine wonderland of Mt Kenya: whatever get you stoked, Kenya has it. The only thing it doesn't have is crowds or a large volume of sport climbing. Bring your rack, bring your ice tools, bring your machete!

Note: Most crags face sensitive access issues, particularly those outside national parks and near villages. Please contact the Mountain Club of Kenya to get the latest updates and advice.

Getting There

Nairobi is an international hub so it is very easy to get to. Most flights from North America go through Europe or Dubai. Once here, getting around is quite easy. Public buses run most places and rental cars are cheap.

The map was not extended north because Poi and other areas up north are just too dangerous. Dec 14, 2015

Kenya has a long history of climbing with well developed crags near Nairobi as well as a wonderful assortment of "bush" adventure climbs. Guidebooks are available for most areas through the Mountain Club of Kenya (MCK). Also, a list of climbs is being maintained on the (MCK Forum page:

mck.or.ke/open-forum/post/2…

There has been some considerable changes to grades and aid removal in Hells Gate. These are SLOWLY being added to the Forum as time permits.

When visiting Kenya for climbing, please treat it as an established climbing area as opposed to virgin ground where "anything goes".

Thanks and enjoy! Aug 27, 2015
