Welcome to the Mountain Club of Kenya

Sticky post

The Mountain Club of Kenya is a non-profit members club for people enjoying the outdoors in Kenya and beyond. Members get together to hike, rock climb, and scale mountains.

Join us for trips outdoors, or to one of our social events on the second and last Tuesdays of the month in Nairobi. See the upcoming meets here.

Movie screening: Vertical Sailing Greenland

Let’s say it outright, these guys are insane. And not just because they decided to take a sailing boat to Greenland to scale impossible cliffs.

The nine first ascents made by the team, and the style in which they were made, garnered them a nomination for the 2011 Piolet d’Or. Video: Seán Villanueva.

As usual, all welcome to the MCK movie night! This time hosted by Blue Sky climbing wall.

Slideshow by Lewis Mudge, president for life of the Congo Ski Club: a decade of mountaineering

Tuesday 10th at 8:30pm, Casual Bites.

Lewis Mudge has been living in Africa for ten years, in Lesotho, Morocco, the DRC, Rwanda, Burundi and Kenya. While in the DRC from 2008 to 2011, he became obsessed with climbing the Congolese side of the Rwenzoris. Climbing it three times over, he established the Congo Ski Club in 2013 (not to be confused with the Ugandan Ski Club). As the founder of the Congo Ski Club he is president for life.

Check out the video of this trip of the Congo Ski Club

Lewis also made the first climb up Mikeno (4,500 meters) in 28 years, according to Virunga National Park. The park did a blog post on this expedition here. He has climbed 7 of the 8 Virunga volcanoes. He was half way up Nyamilagira in 2010 when he was turned around by fighting. Once that little 3,000 meter hill has been climbed, he will leave Africa.

He will be sharing photos and tales of some of his most exciting and bizarre expeditions with us. Tuesday 10th at 8:30pm at Casual Bites
