Description

Area first developed in 2018 with potential for more exploration and problems. Includes a few separate boulder fields, divided up depending on access from a parking spot. Includes a great variety of boulders, with some really high quality problems, from hard highballs to fun traverses. Not on MCK land so be respectful.

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

While driving up to the campsite, instead of taking the left turn off the main track to the campsite keep going along, and follow the top of the ridge as far as you can with the car. Best parking is at Big Fig Lightning, an obvious cluster of boulders whhere the track ends, with a huge fig tree on the edge (edit: as of March 2020 the fig tree had broken and fallen down, with marks from burning on the remaining trunk - lightning?!). Alternatively, turn off Mombasa Road towards Daystar University and find your way there on dirt tracks, passing Desperation Boulders first on the right, with Big Fig Lightning and other clusters visible as little hills on the ridge on your righ further up.
