Hey there,
Are there any guide books that describe technical rock routes on Mt. Kenya or will I have to search trip reports etc.? Just doing some prelim research on the subject.

I believe that the best book available currently, containing details on practically all routes is Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya by Cameron Burns.

Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya
Cameron Burns - Cordee, 1998

There's also a 1:50K topo map with route descriptions/topos for the standard routes. I picked mine up at Chessler Books.
