Description

Boulder at the bottom of a hill with a cluster of boulders visible from the side of the road past Daystar. A couple fun mantle problems.

Access issues inherited from Desperation boulders

Not MCK land. The land is owned by a relative of the Mulwas, formerly of the Kenyan military. Very nice guy and happy for people to boulder respectfully on his land, but best to let him know (the developers of the bouldering here may have first encountered the landowner brandishing a rifle at them).

Ethic inherited from Lukenya

Lukenya is mostly trad, with some specific sport crags. No bolting is allowed without special permission from the Mountain Club of Kenya - get in touch with them if you think you have spotted a sport route, think there should be an extra bolt on a climb, see some degraded equipment, etc. Avoid cutting down any vegetation beyond a few bush branches - if you think a particular tree poses a real danger to climbers please bring this to the attention of MCK. Don't harass any of the local, sometimes rare wildlife.
