Description 

Several boulders in an open lot near the road with a great view of Lake Victoria as your backdrop. Just as everywhere else, the rock quality is great here. Most boulders here are pretty short and tend to be a hang out area for some local punk kids.

Just kidding, the kids are fine - they may even climb with you if you give them the chance. Keep an eye on your stuff though, while they're around.

The area is easy to find, though, and great for a warm up before heading to other nearby areas such as Punk Kids Upper and Stone Tembo Rock Garden.

Getting There 

From Yun Long Hotel, go south and take the first right to go uphill. Keep going uphill on the main road past the roadside boulders. The road will pass the peak of the hill and start down; you will continue until you reach a fork. The right side will go to a water plant, so take the left. The boulders will be on your right in an empty lot.

There's a huge boulder on the left side of the road at the crest of the hill - this is at the far end of the Punk Kids Lower area.

Unfortunately, we didn't take any good photos of this rock, so I'm going off faded memory here. I believe you start on decent feet and small hands, then have to move hands up to sheer sloper holds and crimps while feet get smeared up high. From there, it's a desperate throw for a weird gaston/crimp at the top with your right hand. Pick your right foot smear well, as you have to stand up on it to make the throw.The delicate footwork...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
