Ethic inherited from Patiko

Very little climbing goes on here although this is excellent rock. The Recreation Project in Gulu sometimes uses this slab for abseiling with kids. Check out their website and contact them for more details. As of December 2017, they were keen to have some lower offs/belay points bolted on the rock. With a little asking around and confirmation, permission to bolt might easily be granted. It isn't clear who would need to "permit" bolting but good to ask around anyway.

Using the crack at the top of the rock, you can setup an anchor with large cams Black Diamond sizes 2-6 work. This is a bit left of the crack and about 2m left of the normal route.

This nice slab climb starts directly below the crack. You won't need a directional for this route. After building the anchor, abseil down and follow the rope back up to the top.

Abseil down from the anchor. From the bottom, move right and on top of the two boulders. There seems to be no move from here, so sit and swing on the rope around to the right. This is the NW corner of the rock. Get established on the rock and from there and make your way up. After this tricky start, it is a nice route.
