Description

The Main Wall is the biggest and most serious cliff easily accessible from Nairobi. The majority of routes feel their way over loose sections and the finishes generally require care. It is not the place where one can afford to lunge for holds. Walls and slabs are virtually frictionless and most routes tend to follow cracks and grooves. Generally speaking, climbs on the Main Wall fall into a similar pattern. Starts follow steep, sound cracklines, then at about 200' fade into broken ground which leads to looser exits.
