A massive big-wall in Samburu, Northern Kenya. There are a few routes, with potential for more on the steepest parts. Routes are long (2 days), committing, and often difficult. Be prepared for extreme heat in the day, cold at night, and variable rock quality.

Getting There 

Drive north from Nairobi to just past Archer's Post. Can't miss it.

Climbing Season
