Falling apart

  • Grade context: UK


One of a handful of boulders down the hill from the campsite. Nice problem with an unfortunately placed tree in the way of the topout. DO NOT cut or damage the tree - FA was done without doing so, you can too.


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.



Go down the hill from the campsite, past B-Shug and keeping right for about 300 m. Follow the pin!


Ethic inherited from Lukenya

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