Description

Short, overhanging boulder with a couple of powerful problems.

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.

History

History timeline chart

First developed in 2005 by Felix Berg and consigned to a notebook topo which was lost then found in the MCK library move in 2018. Thanks to Peter Horsey who drew those topos and still had photos and memories of where the boulders are for re-discovery in 2020!

Grade Route

A couple of variations on the left-hand side of the boulder, starting stood up at the horizontal rail and mantling. Very short but strenuous.

FA: Felix Berg, 2005

Sit-start on the only real obvious holds through the middle of the boulder. Hard move to get established in the pocket, then hard moves to the top.
