Red River Gorge

Red River Gorge Rock Climbing

Whether you want to learn to rock climb or refine your skills, Red River Gorge rock climbing offers something for everyone. One of the finest sport climbing venues in the world, the Red lies nestled in the Daniel Boone National Forest* near Slade, Kentucky and provides a great place for beginning climbers to learn the ropes as well as advanced climbers to hone their pulling skills. Guided rock climbing and instruction are available all year long rain or shine in the Red River Gorge proper as well as Muir Valley.

The traditional “trad” climbing opportunities are endless in the Gorge proper, which facilitates a great learning environment for the beginning trad leader. Our Single Pitch Lead courses are great way to learn to start plugging gear into the Corbin sandstone.

For the aspiring climbing instructor, we offer AMGA Single Pitch Instructor Courses and Exams.
