/ What's the best months for a climbing trip to Red River Gorge?
I was there is September and it was always really humid. Warm enough, climbing in shorts and t-shirt mostly.
Avoid the height of summer. Way too humid. Late September and October are fine. I have climbed there in November...fine in the sun but getting cold in the shade. Loads of Sun/shade options to suit for spring or Autumn. Enjoy...it is superb! A sport climbing destination that I wish I could visit more often...
Thanks guys, much appreciated. Sounding good.
Cold is good there as friction makes a big difference, I.e. days where you need full winter tactics are the best conditions. I would go late Oct and early Nov if I had the choice, but if you prefer pleasant temps to sending temps then earlier would be better
Someone please say April, because I'm three days away from the Red and heading that way.
