Summary

Kibwezi is a little explored area South 3 hours on Mombasa Road from Nairobi. It has enormous potential for bouldering, bold trad, and sport development, although little has been done there yet.

Description

Kibwezi has numerous crags and boulders on the mountain of Ngoleni, which is capped by a number of cellphone towers. It can be clearly seen from Mombasa road.

Access issues

Access is currently informal, as it is little visited, but the landowners are quite friendly and the security guards at the cellphone towers happy to have visitors. Do not pay the landowners without prior MCK approval.

Approach

The approach is from around the town of Kibwezi over a network of rough roads. These are well mapped on maps.me. Accessing the boulder fields and lower crags is not difficult, but the road to the summit is quite steep and can be muddy. A good 4x4 or Pro Box is recommended.

Where to stay

The area is generally friendly, and if you ask permission landowners will let you stay on their land in exchange for some food and company.

Ethic

Although the area has huge potential for 1 and 2 pitch sport, check with the MCK before bolting.
