Description

A streakey boulder positioned under the second of three obvious roofs observed to the left when driving from Nemesis up to the campsite.

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.

Approach

From Nemesis parking lot, walk along the road in the direction of the camp site. On the left hand side you will observe 3 large and obvious roofs up on the hill. The second one of the three is the one you will approach by way of bushwacking and following game trails.

Ethic inherited from Lukenya

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

Grade Route

The firs ascent was done onsight, no crash pads, no shoes, no chalk, no warmup. A true spur of the moment ascent. Climb straight up from a sharp rail by way of one big move and a series of smaller holds lead to the topout.
