Description 

The long, single pitch wall on the right. Mostly columnar basalt with numerous vertical crack systems. The climbs are mostly vertical, continuous (albeit short), and solid. The routes are named in accordance to the belay stake in front (or nearest) them; so ("stake 2" is in front of the 2nd belay stake from the right. See the beta photos for details.

Getting There 

After entering Hell's Gate National Park, this is the low
wall on the right (not far from the park entrance) encountered before getting to Fischer's Tower. Park along the dirt road and walk (100 meters) to the cliff base. The climbs are marked with belay stakes, and the anchor webbing can be viewed from the road.

Great crag, particularly if you want to do a day trip from Nairobi. Or stay at Lake Naivasha and climb to your heart's delight. Where else can you see giraffes, zebra, buffalo, and baboons from the crag?

Recognizing the crag grades are highly dependent on hand size, I thought the grades were a touch soft.
