Red River Gorge

Red River Gorge is an hour southeast of Lexington in Eastern Kentucky. The climbing area has about 2500 climbs now, with about 150 new routes added each year. The super hard sandstone creates routes of the highest quality. Each of the 50+ established crags has a handful of classic lines. Red River is known for its sport routes, but the trad lines are excellent as well. For more information on this Appalachian climbing area see this site.
