Crag features

Single and multi-pitch routes, both trad and sport on excellent quality rock. The climbing style on the whole is typical of granite (lots of slabs and cracks) and gear is usually good although at time run out. There are also a number of boulders around the base of the crag with many established problems.

Approach notes

South East of Nairobi past Athi River. Just off Mobassa Road. Look out for signs to Lukenya Academy on main highway and follow these down a dirt road heading east for about 1.5km until you reach the school gates. The security guards will ask you to sign in and confirm that you have paid MCK. A dirt track winds through the school grounds and loops back around north and west underneath the crag. Park sensibly, pack out your rubbish and if you have to take a crap make sure you bury it deep! 

Access Advice

The crag is owned by the Mountain Club of Kenya who charge a small fee for camping and use of the crag by non-members. They can be contacted through: The MCK have also published the only guidebooks (2 volumes) to the crag and are the only place to get hold of a copy.

This is one of the most amazing climbing venues that I have visited on my travels, lots of variety of climbing so there is something for everyone from bouldering to multi-pitch to short technical routes with a good view and almost always sunshine
