Description 

Nansambya is a big rock formation not a specific route. Has some nice holds and variation. Rock felt good. from 30-50 feet in height along wide formation about 200 yards long. currently few anchors on top but likely the Uganda Mountain Club will add some bolts for belay. has a few boulders to sling and there are a few cracks to place trad gear in.


Location 

From the dirt road described in the approach, look at the rocks. There are two domes with a pointed formation in the cleft between them. The routes of nansambya rock are on the smaller of the two main domes. To your right when looking from the road.


Protection 

We built a TR anchor with a couple trad pieces in the crack on top and TRed a short easy route. Could be some leads trad, but would be sketchy gear I think. Might be some bolts in the future if Uganda Mountain Club develops this area.
