The Swaheli word for dream is Ndoto and these mountains the Dream mountains are just that. A wild and unexplored area. Huge peaks and walls rise out of the semi arid deserts of Northern Kenya on the upper edge of Samburu county and just south of Lake Turkana the ‘cradle of mankind’.
This is an area with vast amounts of unclimbed rock which is where our trip comes in. After making the long and spectacular journey from the capital Nairobi we set a permanent base camp at Ngurnit from which to operate. From here we can climb single pitch, multi pitch and big wall lines. From our vantage at base camp we are surrounded by rock and great options. This all sits under the huge walls of Mt Poi which has a couple of routes on and is a very impressive feature of the area.
The trekking is also fantastic in this area with big rocky summits and a wealth of scrambling and enjoyable big days in wild Masai country.
As part of this package to ensure the best success in Kenya and mountaineering weekend in the UK. Based in the Scottish Highlands we have a two day climbing trip ticking classics such as Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis to get us moving well on mountain rock. We also have an evening lecture on Mt Kenya and discuss kit and equipment that would be needed on the trip.
