North Picnic Tree is the parking spot to access Main Wall and a few other lesser-climbed crags (Practice Wall, Hyrax Wall, etc.).


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.



Drive through Lukenya Academy, turn left past some animal enclosures, then through a gate. From here turn left again and follow the school fence back towards Mombasa Road for a few hundred metres. Just past the MCK sign a small track goes off the main track, this is the North Picnic Tree parking spot.


Ethic inherited from Lukenya

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