Andy Gremley will be leading this meet. Here is what he had to say –
“There is a small gorge off the Magadi Road where I have hiked several times.  One time I took gear (and an ex-cimber friend) with a plan to explore the rock wall at the end.  I recall it being less than 20′ of VDiff climbing on rounded holds with all my pro falling out.  It emerges into an isolated pond surrounded by steep rock on all sides.  As my ex-climber friend was too nervous and there was no place for a belay, I was not able to get the friend up and attempt any of the steep walls rising out of the pond but noted the possibilities there.  Anyone interested in a rarely visited gorge hike with some possibilities for interesting climbing can join this Saturday 27 May.  A bolt gun can be useful but I managed to abseil using a perfect natural rock lip to avoid a tricky downclimb which I presume is still there.  Maybe small wires will work on the way up for the lead but a bolt will make a safe belay for the masses.”
