Boulder
{US} V1 Jack, don't let go

Round the side from iceberg, good warm-up. Pretty vertical on crimps. Don't let go!

FA: IanT, 30 Mar

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders Little House on the Prarie
V1 Treehugger

Starts in the juggy crack on the left, follows the crack up right to the dihedral and goes straight up. A really nice climb with an airy top out. The small tree in the middle of the line is off!

FA: Andrew Andress

Boulder
V3 Laura

Far right of the boulder. Sit start at the bottom of the obvious rail, and move up and right using a combo of powerful moves and heel hook trickery. Mantle up and over onto the slab, and walk up to finish.

FA: Andrew Andress

Boulder
V5 Log Cabin Proposal

Up the face on the left side of the boulder next to Treehugger.

FA: Michele Leone

Boulder
V4 Wood Stove

Up the middle of the boulder, traverse left on crimps, then same top out as Treehugger

FA: Nathan Brand

Boulder
{US} V3 The Blind One

Far right of the boulder. Sit start with you right hand on the rail and left hand on an undercling jug. Powerful moves up to a crimp and then the overhanging rail, before topping out on the same finish as Laura.

FA: Nathan Brand

Boulder
{US} V1 Donovan McSlabb

Straight up the slab on pebbles to the top. Avoid arete on right and large feature on left (slab only pure and simple)

FA: Andrew Andress

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders Night Crawler
Back Bone (project)

Sit-down start on good rail, moves up the rail and over the lip. Avoid dabbing on the tree that is directly under you. Tricky one to spot and pad.

On the boulder with a tree in front of it just to the right of Nightcrawler.

BoulderProject
{US} V6 Night Crawler

Sit-down start on the arete, left hand on good side pull and right hand on lowest crimp, starts up the arete and then takes a big swing to the face of the overhang with a very tricky mantle to the top. A true Lukenya test-piece.

FA: Nathan Brand (stolen from Andrew Andress), 1 Feb 2017

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders Oversized Block
V4 Kenyan Cowgirl

Crouch start below and right of the horizontal crack on a pinch and an edge, moves left following the crack and then goes straight up.

FA: Nathan Brand

Boulder
{US} V0 Kenyan cowsmallboy

Go up the easy broken rock to the right of Kenyan Cowgirl.

FA: Nathan Brand

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders The One with the View
V2 Quicky

Mental. Traverse left and up on good holds, just don't swing off and down the big drop underneath.

FA: Henrick Reuhkala

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders The Roost
V2 Chickenhead

Sit-down start matched on really nice jug, moves left and up with a big move to a nice edge up at the lip. One of Lukenya's best!

FA: Andew Andress

Boulder
V3 Rooster Tail

Sit-down start on the same jug as Chicken Head, moves right and up. (Very tensiony for shorter climbers and probably a full grade harder due to the heinous intermediate side-pull crimp before the jug near the top.)

FA: Andew Andress

Boulder
V4 Kuku Kienyeji

Stand start on the left side of the boulder, traverse across the middle of the face, and finish up the same moves as Rooster Tail. Pumpy!

FA: Andew Andress

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders The Wave
V1/2 Ripple

Highball. Stand start and go straight up the face. A really nice technical boulder problem. Avoid using boulder on the right. *It could possibly be a V0 variation if used.

FA: Nathan Brand

Boulder
Nathan's Project

On the face round the side from Ripple - unclimbed VHard project. Start on obvious holds to the right of the far left arete and climb small crimps to a big move and an easy topout.

BoulderProject
Campsite Area Boulders Trash boat
V4 Trash boat

Low start on compression of the block that looks like a boat near a pile of trash. Compress your way up to the throne topout.

FA: Nathan Brand

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders Upper Roost
V0 Upper Roost Warmup

Travel on jugs on overhanging face above Chicken Head.

FA: Andew Andress

Boulder
V4 Flirt

Start on small crimps on right face of arete on block to the right of upper roost warmup. Landing better than it looks.

FA: Nathan Brand

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders Whale's mouth
V3 Mom Pants Traverse

Same start as Oversize Shorts with low left traverse and finishes up Carolyn's Baby. Really fun moves on the overhung traverse.

Boulder
V2 Oversized shorts

Crouch start on far right of prow, traverses just a few moves left and then up the face

FA: Lindsey Andress

Boulder
V1 Carolyn's baby

Sit-down start matched on low slot edge, goes straight up on great slopers edges and incuts.

Boulder
V3 Whale's mouth traverse

Start on left most holds in the whale’s mouth and finish on the top out of oversized shorts.

FA: Andrew Andress

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders Rookie Rock
VB Credit Card Warm-up

This is the obvious easiest line on the boulder. It's juggy all the way up and easily doable for most climbers in flip flops.

FA: Probably a Maasai sheperd

Boulder
V2 Ice Cube

Sit-down start with left hand on rail and right on low crimp, moves up the short problem using slopey compression and crimps. It's a nice lowball.

FA: Andrew Andress

Boulder
V1 Dancin' Shoes

Sit-down start with left hand low on arete and right hand on a very low undercling, moves a few moves up the arete and then traverses right across and up a the slab. Avoid going all the way up arete or around on the left side.

FA: Lindsey Andress

Boulder
V1 Rookie of the Year

Sit-down start (almost lying) on low jug and goes straight up the right side of the boulder.

FA: John Shunk

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders Cereal Killer
{US} V0 Cheerio

Up the easiest part of the boulder with lots of textured holds and good feet. Stand-start. Good for first-timers outside or for a quick warm-up.

FA: John Shunk, 6 Sep 2017

Boulder
V1 Frosted Flake

Ascend the boulder using the flake on its left-hand side. STand-start.

FA: John Shunk

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders Razorback
{US} V4 Razorback

Sit start on low rail. Make big move up to the crimp and commit to the top out.

FA: Nathan Brand

FA: Nathan Brand

Boulder
{US} V3 Angelina

Nice warmup for the other two, with an interesting topout. Sit-start on the obvious hold on the right of the boulder, going to another good hold with quite a big move, then up again. Keep your nerve for the topout, the holds are there. Spotter should jump on top of the boulderer if they fall to avoid tumbling down the rock behind!

FA: Andrew Andress, 1 May 2017

Boulder
{US} V4 Social Distancing

Beautiful line going up the arete, avoiding Razorback holds until the jug for the topout. Sit start low to the left of the arete, come round to the right of it to a good crimp, then a big move up the slanting crack. Keep it together and go for the finishing jug before the same topout as Razorback.

FA: John Shunk, 19 Mar

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders Golden Nugget
{US} V4 Golden Nugget

Crouch start in full compression. Climb the fridge trending left to the top out.

Takes the proud south-facing face and the two aretes. Start with a right hand on the arete on the rigth and a left on a crimp in the centre of the face. Work your way up with compression magic. Spotter for the FA was tied into a rope anchored on a nearby tree to avoid a tumble down the cliff below and protect the climber!

FA: Nathan Brand, 4 Aug 2017

Boulder
Campsite Area Boulders Whole Tree
V1 Whole Tree

FA: Andrew Andress

BoulderProject
Nemesis Area Boulders Golden Block
V3 Fanta Orange

Starts crouched. Straight up the face on good holds, just don't look down at the top to avoid fantaing your trousers.

FA: Andrew Andress, 1 Apr 2017

Boulder
V4 Golden Shower

Same start as Golden Power, bail right around the arete.

FA: Nathan Brand

Boulder
V5/6 Golden Power

Start on arete, make your way left onto face and then straight up through big powerful moves.

FA: Nathan Brand, 1 May 2017

Boulder
Nemesis Area Boulders Nemesis Posse
V3 Witness the Weakness

Crouch start with both hands in the big crack, on the left. Go straight up from there, avoiding Weakness Protection Programme which is further right.

FA: Eric Ducroix, 2 Apr 2017

Boulder
{US} V2 Weakness Protection Programme

Very similar to Witness the Weakness, but start further right with hand in the big crack and go up slghtly better holds over the top.

FA: IanT, 2 Apr

Boulder
V2 Bolt-Free Froggies

Go up the arete opposite Witness the Weakness. Start on jugs on the left for easier, lower on crimps on the right for harder.

FA: Andrew Andress?

Boulder
{US} V2/3 Bigrock Horseman

Sit-start low to the right of the arete, go up on crimps and big left-hand gaston staying right of arete to the top.

FA: IanT, 2 Apr

Boulder
Picnic tree Boulders Dinosaur Egg
V2 Ballz Hot

Crouch start in the overhang matched in a good slot in the crack, climb out right and up the right side of the face. Once you pass the two big holes in the face (great jugs) you are commited. This is a pretty scary but all around amazing climb. Avoid using the right arete until at the top, although this can be a nice bailout lower down. Getting off the boulder can be tricky!

FA: Andrew Andress

Boulder
Picnic tree Boulders The Crown
V3 The Joker

Crouch start matched in low crack on the side of the boulder you arrive at from the picnic tree path, follow crack out of roof and then climb arete left to finish left over the exposed overhang.

FA: Andrew Andress

Boulder
V3 Jack

Same start as Joker but goes right out of roof and up the short face to the top.

FA: Andrew Andress

Boulder
V5 Heavy is the Head

To the right of Jack. Sit-down start matched on the thin edge, powerful moves up and to the right out of the roof then left up the short pace. Amazing, precise moves!

FA: Tyler Algeo

Boulder
V5 All Things Royal

To the right of Heavy is the Head. Sit-down start with hands on low on quasi symmetrical crimpy edges, a few big moves straight up to the top.

FA: Andrew Andress

Boulder
V4 For Every King a Crown

Start left hand in pocket and right hand on good side pull, moves right and up on slopers, crimps, and small feet. One of my all-time favorites at Lukenya! On the backside of the boulder - needs at least two pads and a decent spotter to avoid the nearby boulder in a fall.

FA: Andrew Andress

Boulder
Picnic tree Boulders Tickfest
V1 Tickle my fancy

Up the slab on the left side of the boulder, starting as low and as far left as possible then making your way up and to left, topping out near the tree branches. Slabby and technical climbing.

FA: IanT

Boulder
V2 Ticked off

Start on the lowest jugs in the middle of the boulder and top out on the chicken head at the top.
