Description

A couple of clusters of boulders not too far from Far Ridge (though on quite rough dirt tracks) found during desperate times.

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

Best to take Daystay University turn-off, go past Daystar and onto a decent dirt road. The first little cluster is 50 m off the road on the right, with the second larger cluster visible from there, drive a bit further up and walk to the hill with lots of boulders about 300 m off the road on the right.
