6 DAYS ROCK CLIMBING – Batian peak ( northface , standard route)


For information only.

Because of Mt. Kenya’s unique position on the equator, climbing seasons and route conditions vary with the sun’s position. For example, a climber interested in doing one of the best ice routes, which are on the south side of the mountain, should climb when the sun is in the north, between the months of June and December. However, during the same period the east and north sides are in the best condition for rock climbing. Conversely, when the sun is in the south, the south side offers the best rock routes and north the better ice climbing conditions.

Recommended routes:

  • December-March

Normal Route, Standard IV (rock: South West Ridge, Standard V (rock routes).

  • June-September

North Face, Standard IV (rock Route).
