Lukenya has a lot of bouldering, and much more to explore!

Access issues inherited from Lukenya

Lukenya is owned by the Mountain Club of Kenya and entrance is free for members. Non-members have to pay for a daily membership (KES400 for Kenyan citizens, KES800 for others, payable by Mpesa paybill no 880926. Account: guest fee). No commercial groups are allowed. Some climbs are occasionally off-limits when eagles are nesting (in particular Eagles Nest Face). If this is the case its normally communicated on a notice in the sign-on book at the gate and through a climber whatsapp group.

Approach

We divided the bouldering into several areas: - Campsite: at the top of the Lukenya hill, near the campsite. Short walk, good landings some highballs. - Nemesis: around the Nemesis sport crag. Quite a variety of boulders scattered around the bushes. - Picnic tree: close to the carpark that's at the end of the road (near boulder crag). A few classic/historical boulders with many variations. - Watertower: the other side of Lukenya hill. That's the prime bouldering location in Lukenya. - Far ridge: on top of Lukenya hill, but going East, away from the campsite. Several clumps of boulders with much more to explore.
