Summary

The only outdoor rock climbing within Kampala!

Description

This crag has 20+ chain belays, and more routes are continuing to be developed by The Mountain Club of Uganda (MCU). Most routes are bolted for single pitch sport climbing, although a few are top-rope only. Both crag faces get afternoon shade, and climbing is great from about 2:30 pm to sunset at around 7 pm, which is consistent year-round in Uganda. On cloudy days, the rock stays cool enough that climbers can climb from sunrise to sunset.

MCU regularly runs climbing events at the quarry, where club equipment is available for rent to members who don't have their own gear. Check www.mcu.ug for a calendar of events.

Access issues

This crag is closed until further notice.

Climbing here is only permitted to Mountain Club of Uganda members. Membership details at mcu.ug. It is around 15 USD per year to join and the club reinvests that money in bolting and retrofitting crags so please join up! Consider donating above the membership fees as well. Better yet, offer to help out by cleaning crags, bolting, running trips or carry some much needed club gear into your suitcase on your next flight to UG. Getting gear into the country is tricky and expensive, so bring everything you might need with you.

Camping is not allowed at this site.

Ethic

The Mountain Club of Uganda is responsible for bolting at the quarry. Only the MCU committee can approve bolting. The landowner does not permit any other bolting. Contact www.mcu.ug for more details.

History

History timeline chart

Pierre Gay Perret first noticed this crag whilst jogging. After many visits, he noticed the quarrying had stopped. After asking around a bit, the landowner was found and access was first granted to the Mountain Club of Uganda in November 2016. Cleaning and bolting yielded the first complete routes by January 2017.
