About Sangalo Rocks:

Prominent rocks on the top of a hill on the left as you drive from Bungoma to Mumias. Many tall, crackless faces for anyone willing to develop. Two quality 100 ft crack climbs.
Nearest town or city: Bungoma
Directions: From Bungoma, head south on Mumias road through town and past the matatu stage. When you reach the "Happy Moments" sign, turn left towards Sangalo. Continue for several kilometers until road merges with another road from the left. Keep right and continue a few more kilometers until you see a Sangalo Institute of Technology sign on your LEFT (ignore the earlier one on your right). Turn left at the sign toward the obvious tall rocks, down a small, bad dirt road until it ends. Follow the foot patch through people's houses, keeping right. Kids will likely show you the trail
Latitude, Longitude: 0.52094, 34.60608
Access Issues: Must walk through farmers' plots, but they are kind and accommodating. Like many of the tall rocks in the area, the hill is considered spiritual, so inquire before bolting.
Camping: No
When to Climb: Autumn Spring Summer Winter
Quantity of Climbs: Day
