Description

A stunning piece of rock that loos more like a shark than it does a rock.

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.

Start matched low in The Shark's mouth at the end of the toothy rail. A fun traverse along the razor sharp teeth end in big moves to the shark's nose.

The most visually iconic line on the plains. Start is shared with 'Gills' (matching the far left of the crack rail). Traverse the rail before performing a series of athletic moves leading right to a shared top out with 'Shark Bite.'

FA: Peter Naituli, 13 May
