The only outdoor rock climbing within Kampala!
This crag has 20+ chain belays, and more routes are continuing to be developed by The Mountain Club of Uganda (MCU). Most routes are bolted for single pitch sport climbing, although a few are top-rope only. Both crag faces get afternoon shade, and climbing is great from about 2:30 pm to sunset at around 7 pm, which is consistent year-round in Uganda. On cloudy days, the rock stays cool enough that climbers can climb from sunrise to sunset.
MCU regularly runs climbing events at the quarry, where club equipment is available for rent to members who don't have their own gear. Check www.mcu.ug for a calendar of events.
Where to stay
As this crag is in Kampala, any accommodation in the city will work, but the closest neighborhoods are Muyenga, Makindye, Kabalagala and Bugolobi.
Camping is not allowed at this site.
Pierre Perret first noticed this crag whilst jogging. After many visits, he noticed the quarrying had stopped. After asking around a bit, the landowner was found and access was first granted to the Mountain Club of Uganda in November 2016. Cleaning and bolting yielded the first complete routes by January 2017.
