Description Suggest change

South facing, steep, just above the school along the road to the top of Lukenya (at driver's left).

While this crag is not on MCK land, the landowner has a close relationship with the MCK. Visitors who do not belong to the MCK must pay a small access fee and are requested to be extremely respectful to the crag, land, and road, lest we jeopardize access. Pack out your trash.

Getting There Suggest change

Drive just past the school on the road to the summit of Lukenya. The crag is on the left.
