Red River Gorge Week Trip


I just got back from a week long trip to the Red! Despite going to the Red about 10 times, this is my first trip in the Fall. MAN! I’ve been missing out! If you’ve never been to the Red in October, or on 60 degree days, GO! Last summer I went, it was 90 out every day, the rock was always wet, it was very humid, and I still had a great time. In October, it’s AMAZING! You stick to every hold, rarely have to chalk, and the fall foliage is in full effect. We had a great trip, my girlfriend Maya, and our friends Alan and Julie and I rented a cabin with a hot tub and climbed two on one off for the whole trip. Everyone had great sends, great spirit, and an overall awesome trip! I couldn’t have asked it to be any different.
The crags were packed, but it was okay. There are so many routes at every wall there is always something to get on. No mishaps on our part, although I did witness an foreign lady get pulled up to the first bolt, hit the climber, spin around, and slam her head on the wall at the Motherlode. Luckily there seemed to be no major damage, just a little blood. Things do happen, and you always must be careful, climbing, belaying, and even just walking around where ever you may be. I don’t have much time to write now, but I’ll post my tick list soon. Cheers!
