Description

A great spot to climb. A couple small trees partially shade the belayers here, but the wall is pretty sun exposed most of the day. Some of the routes share belays and some are missing mallion, so take some biners and slings with you to build anchors where necessary. All can be setup for top rope and all hardware can be retrieved from the top of the crag afterwards.

There are six routes on this wall including the hardest and easiest climb at Insita. The left side has great crack climbing which can be trad climbed and is only bolted for top rope.

Access issues inherited from Nsiita

Free for everyone. Insita Luwazi is on community land. Climbers have always had a warm welcome. We pay 3000 Uganda Shillings to park at a nearby house. There is some occasional conflict in the community about who should get those shillings. Up to now, this has not affected the climbers. Call Ishma at: 0773 128 861 and tell him you are coming or just show up. He will let you park in front of his house and can show you around the crag if needed. Ishma maintains the trail to Insita and can clean/thrash the belay area if needed. You can also buy local food and produce from Ishma if you choose. Climbing at camping at Insita Luwazi is free.

Ethic inherited from Nsiita

Insita is pretty developed, so there isn't much room to bolt new routes. If you see a line you'd like to add, please check with the Mountain Club of Uganda.
