Description

A nice little boulder shaped somewhat like a piece of cauliflower. The problems on it are short but brilliant.

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.

A two minute walk East 'The Storm' boulder.

Grade Route

A semi-powerful problem up the orange section on the right hand side of the boulder. Start matched on lowest, small crack rail

FA: Peter Naituli, 29 Apr

Start on the obvious jug rail at the center bottom of the boulder and go straight up, and most importantly... have fun!

FA: Gabriel Jackson, 29 Apr

Start on the left of the same juggy rail as 'Gobi Head' and go straight up the not so obvious arete. The only feature this route shares with Gobi Head is the rail at the bottom. Stay away from the holds far right as this is a different problem.

FA: Peter Naituli, 29 Apr
