A promising area that needs to be explored. Zero known climbing up to this point.



When driving from Kampala to Fort Portal, you cannot miss all the large granite domes and boulders easily viewable from the main road. Nothing yet has been discovered that is good for climbing as the domes are not vertical enough for climbing. However, Insita, which is one of the best climbing sites in the country is a granite dome with one steep section. The quality of rock is excellent and there must be lots of climbing in the Mubende area.

It is very hard to describe to a local Ugandan what type of rock climbers are looking for. I have taken many exploratory trips around Uganda with local people. Ugandans always show me huge rocks, but rarely, if ever are they suitable for climbing for one reason or another. It will be essential to train up some local people in climbing to help identify new crags, which must be plentiful in this area and around most of the country. Exploring this area has been time consuming and not yielded much worth noting, but most of the area has not yet been explored by climbers.


Access issues

Access has not been discussed or negotiated with the local community.


Ethic inherited from Uganda

Climbing is mostly unknown in Uganda. Please do climbers a favor and build a positive impression in the country through exemplary behavior and conscientious contributions to the communities you visit.
