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

Same as for Main Wall, but keep going left at the base of the wall.

Start at bottom of leftward-rising corner, just before ground drops away leftwards. Climb below or in the corner (as vegetation allows) until corner reaches dodgy sapling on dusty ledge. From sapling, climb directly into scoop and up wall on hollow flakes.
