Climbing at the Red

Labor Day Weekend I got to go rock climbing at the gorge-ous Red River Gorge in central Kentucky.
After rapelling down an ampitheater (just dangling in mid-air, no wall to kick off of!) we finally found our climb. It took about 5 hours for the three of us to make it up the 4 pitches, but it was great!

Tony lead the trad climbs, I "cleaned," and Bob followed up the rear. I was glad these guys welcomed me on their trip, but I think I didn't spoil their fun too much!

The great lodge where we stayed. We slept in the dorm-style bunkbeds in the loft!
