• Grade context: UK


Big overhanging boulder round the back. There is essentially one very long V6 which starts deep in the cave and traverses out and up, but easier variations are possible starting closer to the end.


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.


Ethic inherited from Lukenya

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

Grade Route

Long and sustained! Start way to the right under the overhang, just left of the entrance to the cave. Work your way left on decent holds and bad feet to a hard match (crux), then round then corner and up the blocky finish.

The blocky finish to rock slide, straight up from a stand-start. Cheeky handjam at the top for those into that kind of thing.
