Not the best climbing in the country, but a couple nice routes nonetheless. If you are doing a Rwenzori Trek via the Kilembe Trail, you are right near the trailhead, so take your climbing gear for a little cragging before/after tackling the Rwenzori.©
Free and unrestricted. The local tour company, Rwenzori Trekking Services, helps climbers use this crag.
The benefit here is that it is outside the national park (RMNP), so you can climb here and avoid the high park fees.©
Park at the Trekkers/Backpackers (Rwenzori Trekking Service (RTS)) hostel. From there, you can easily walk to the crag. With directions from the hostel staff, it is easy to find and shouldn't take more than 10-20 mins. The coordinates are: 0.21083333, 30.00527778. It is just above the river and only about 1km from the hostel.
To find on your own without RTS or GPS help, the climbing 'wall' is on the right side of the first bridge encountered when heading from Backpackers hostel in Kilembe towards Kasese.©
Where to stay
This part of Uganda sees lots of foreign trekkers heading into the Rwenzori, so a few climbers will be no surprise to local people. The welcome is nice and friendly. I suspect developing this crag would be welcomed by the local people, though there isn't much room for further bolting.©
