Into “The Red”

No, we haven’t run out of dosh – just moved onto Kentucky and The Red River Gorge. It’s the annual fundraising bash – Rocktoberfest and also a long weekend, so it’s mobbed. It also decided to thunderstorm and dump a load of rain. Headline could have been: Red – Rain pouring down  (wake up, Peter Gabriel fans!)

Happily there is some properly steep rock here, so having got rained off a slabby 10b we threw ourselves at a ridiculously steep 11b and surprised ourselves with success. The holds are HUGE!

  1. Hello, Looks like you’re ticking all the highlights of Appalachians. Do you have plan for anything closer to Missouri? I hear Jackson Falls in southern Illinois (about 60 miles north of Paducah, KY) is a great sport climbing venue. That’s a little over 4 hours from us.

    • Just spotted your comment re Jackson Falls. Looks good and not a million miles away from our route. Is that somewhere you might be interested in meeting up? Cheers, Dom
