Large dome, has 1-2 pitch length slabs. Some cracks and holds but lots-o-slab.

Rock is solid enough, Approach has thorns, wildlife around (saw a monkey on top). Hot, no shade during the day. Get here at dawn and climb before it gets too hot.

Getting There 

From Kampala, find the turnabout for the highway heading to Luwero at N00.35264 E032.56278
Head north to Luwero Town N00.83792 E032.49614
go through Luwero and head north on same road towards Nakasongala district.
Turn right off main highway from Luwero when you get to a nice paved road going East to Nakasongala town at N01.32578 E032.42225 (this may be one of multiple right turns that get you into nakasongala town but was the nicest paved road we found)
In town turn left (north) from Nakasongala at N01.31751 E032.46565
turn right at dirt road N01.37256 E032.48158 (at this road the army base gate is just visible on the paved road ahead, Do not enter the army base or approach the gate, if you reach the gate you went too far)
Follow the dirt road, it will run just south of the rock. It will be a clearly visible dome to your left as you approach. We parked in the bush. Not sure what is private property or most secure for your vehicle etc. . . We had no issue parking just off the dirt road in the bush on a very narrow rutted bad road and just walking up to the rock.
summit is at N01.3853 E032.5129
We made it within a couple hundred meters of the rock in a 4 door sedan during the dry season. Roads were pretty good for Uganda, but that could change drastically.
