50 to 80 feet of face, sunny and hot most of the day very solid rock, a few old leads bolted and a about 6 sets of new TR anchors along the top. about ten separate lines on the tallest part, maybe more new lines could be opened on the shorter faces also.

There is now an established boulder on the approach to the main crag from Isma's house. As soon as you hit rock after walking through his fields, look to the left and continue at little until you see a huge termite mound. Underneath that is Termite Rock which holds three boulder problems.

Getting There

Take the main road to mukono from Kampala, turn north at the main intersection in mukono. go north about 12 miles on good paved road till the road meets a cross road and jogs a little to continue up a dirt road. follow that dirt road. (your heading in a similar direction after youmake the jog) Pass a left turn off about 0.8 miles up the road, with a sign for a church i think. go about another half mile to another left on dirt road. take this left, as you go down the road you pass a smaller rock on your left. keep going a couple more minutes and there is a big rock on your left. Thats it. There is a house that backs up to the rock, with a blue front painted on it. The lady that lives there lets us park in her driveway, but be very polite and ask permission.we usually give her a couple thousand shillings as we leave. tread lightly as we wont have many options if we piss these local people off.

walk behind that house, up the slabs and the crag is the back side where its steeper. there are walk up and down trails, so you dont have to lead anything if you don't want to.

Access Issues

The man who holds the deeds to the communal land is called Isma and it is his house that we park in front of.

We have agreed to pay him 3000USh per car per night for the parking and overnight security. He will sort out any problems with locals and can even bring food, firewood and charcoal to the top of the rock.

Since this area has been entered into the database, the local climbing community has been very busy indeed. This is no longer just another TR crag, but after painstakingly finding the crag from the MP description, we found about 9-10 bolted climbs with excellent bomber hardware.

I wish we could have found out the names of the nice routes we climbed. but maybe they will eventually added to the database?

If visiting without the benefit of a local showing you the way,(like we did!) the drive is about 1 hour from the Kampala suburb of Mukono and just past the tiny village and well known school house in Kijjo village. Nisita simply means "the rock" and yes, we paid the local matron who lives in the house at the end of the road a few thousand schillings after each day and the whole experience was very positive and the rock is super quality. We added three new routes to the fray. Nov 28, 2015
