Description

This area contains all the boulders accessible from the picnic tree parking spot at the end of the trail going along the bottom of the crags at Lukenya.

It's probably the most well-known and popular bouldering area, including the classic high-ball Dinosaur Egg, and a fanastic V4 and V5 on the Crown boulder in particular.

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.
