NOTICE: Due to construction, climbing at the Muyenga Quarry has been suspended until further notice.

We hope to get you back on the rock soon! Check out some of MCU’s other great climbing sites in Uganda.

Rules on site:

Climbing at the quarry is only permitted to MCU members. If you’re not yet a member, visit our Become a Member page to sign up.

Rock climbing is inherently dangerous.  All climbers must understand and accept the risks involved.  Any person using any gear in any manner is personally responsible for learning the proper techniques and exercising good judgment. Failure to do so can result in severe injury or death.  We strongly recommend that every climber seek instruction by a qualified professional.

You are responsible for your own actions and decisions. MCU is not liable for any injuries.

You are responsible for inspecting all pieces of fixed anchor points and intermediate bolts for safety on each climb, and you are responsible for knowing and respecting your own capabilities and limitations as well as the limitations of all the climbing equipment you are using. The use of secondhand equipment is strongly discouraged.

Be aware that loose rocks are a constant hazard.

We strongly advise everyone to wear proper rock climbing helmets at all times near the rock wall.

Climbers must be vigilant and always “test before you trust” the stability of a rock hold.

Climbers under 18 must have a parent or guardian present at all times. Children are welcome to climb at the quarry, but we request that parents or guardians belay for their children.

In case you don’t own your own gear, climbing gear rental is available during official MCU events.
