The only rock climbing within Kampala!
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.
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.
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.
