One of the best outlying crags around Nairobi, it features 1-2 pitch routes on solid, massive, featured columnar basalt. The climbing combines steep, well-protected crack lines, deep chimneys, and featured face climbing.

Getting There 

A bit hard to find and access is sensitive, so contact the Mountain Club of Kenya before going. Roughly 1.5 hours outside Nairobi, a good chunk of it on rough road.

The road is difficult to pass when wet. Camping is among boulders at the base.

Climbing Season

For the Africa area.

All of this wonderfulness is capped by some heartbreaker jug moves at the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
