Summary

The only rock climbing within Kampala!

Description

As of December 2017, this crag had about 20 chain belays, most of which are bolted for single pitch sport climbing. Both sectors get afternoon shade and climbing is great from about 2:30pm to sunset at around 7pm, which is consistent year-round on Uganda/equator.

Access issues

Climbing here is only permitted to MCU members. Membership details at mcu.ug.

Approach

To get to the parking area, take Kalungi Road to Kawagga Close and park at the Model House. Here is the pin to the parking area: https://goo.gl/maps/H9cmp5bEvgw

Where to stay

As this crag is in Kampala, any accommodation in the city will work, but the closest neighborhoods are Muyenga, Makindye, Kabalagala and Bugolobi.

Camping is not allowed at this site.

Ethic

The Mountain Club of Uganda is responsible for bolting at the quarry. Only the MCU committee can approve bolting. The landowner does not permit any other bolting. Contact mcu.ug for more details.

History

View historical timeline

Pierre Perret first noticed this crag whilst jogging. After many visits, he noticed the quarrying had stopped. After asking around a bit, the landowner was found and access was first granted to the Mountain Club of Uganda in November 2016. Cleaning and bolting yielded the first complete routes by January 2017.
