50 to 80 feet of face, sunny and hot most of the day
very solid rock, a few old leads bolted and a about 6 sets of new TR anchors along the top. about ten seperate lines on the tallest part, maybe more new lines could be opened on the shorter faces also.

Getting There 

Take the main road to mukono from Kampala, turn north at the main intersection in mukono. go north about 12 miles on good paved road till the road meets a cross road and jogs a little to continue up a dirt road. follow that dirt road. (your heading in a similar direction after youmake the jog) Pass a left turn off about 0.8 miles up the road, with a sign for a church i think. go about another half mile to another left on dirt road. take this left, as you go down the road you pass a smaller rock on your left. keep going a couple more minutes and there is a big rock on your left. Thats it. There is a house that backs up to the rock, with a blue front painted on it. The lady that lives there lets us park in her driveway, but be very polite and ask permission.we usually give her a couple thousand shillings as we leave. tread lightly as we wont have many options if we piss these local people off.

walk behind that house, up the slabs and the crag is the back side where its steeper. there are walk up and down trails, so you dont have to lead anything if you don't want to.

Top Ropes 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  Africa : Uganda : Luwazi Rock
Top rope routes here are from easy to difficult. There are 7 sets of TR anchors along the top. Some are quite a bit down from the edge (to avoid the locals from damaging them and reduce rope drag) and you would be best to tie in to something to get to them and drop your rope. Bring long slings or cordage to extend them, your rope will thank you. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
