Giardino di Franco

  • Grade context: UK


Little cluster of boulders underneath a huge stork's nest (empty at time of ascents), and a memorial to a "Franco", a "hunter who has returned to the plains". Couple of lines, far from classic.

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.



Park just past the house with a concrete boat watertower (?), follow good tracks up a slab, Giardino is down and on the right near some houses and shambas.

Ethic inherited from Lukenya

Lukenya is mostly trad. No bolting is allowed without a special permission from the Mountain Club of Kenya.
