Fig Tree Boulder

  • Grade context: UK


This crag lies about 150m behind the South Picnic Tree and bars the head of the wide grassy gully. The climbing is steep and good and the rock excellent. The crag is made up of three faces; the boundaries are as follows:

Fig Tree Face — on the left is a large fig tree and behind it Fig Tree Gully forming the left boundary. The right boundary is the break in the wall forming a line from the summit fig tree to the right-hand end of the overhang at the base of the crag.

Fig Tree Boulder — this is the dark slab below Fig Tree Face where a branch of the fig tree loops over the rock.

Cakewalk Face — this lies directly to the right of Fig Tree Face.


Access issues inherited from Lukenya

Lukenya is owned by the Mountain Club of Kenya and entrance is free for members. Non-members have to pay for a daily membership (KES400 for Kenyan citizens, KES800 for others, payable by Mpesa paybill no 880926. Account: guest fee). No commercial groups are allowed. Some climbs are occasionally off-limits when eagles are nesting (in particular Eagles Nest Face). If this is the case its normally communicated on a notice in the sign-on book at the gate and through a climber whatsapp group.


Ethic inherited from Lukenya

Lukenya is mostly trad. No bolting is allowed without a special permission from the Mountain Club of Kenya.
