- ABOUT THE SPOT
Rock Climbing in Hell’s Gate National Park, Naivasha Lake, Central Province Kenya
Fischers Tower is a 25 m/82 ft high volcanic plug, standing on a flat valley floor and is mainly used for rock climbing in Hell Gate. With rocks composed of lavas, cracked vertically to bring forth columns with narrow rotten bands in between will definitely challenge your skills.
Climbing here is described from the east and anti-clockwise, graded between 4-5. There are 14 climbing routes which cater for all levels of climbers. The main cliffs face at the east, making mornings not suitable for climbing unless it is on a cool day.
