The Red River Gorge in eastern Kentucky is one of the best rock-climbing areas in the world. Its solid well-featured sandstone makes for steep, spectacular climbing, with an almost equal mix of sport and traditionally protected pitches. This revised and updated second edition describes over 1600 climbs, including over 300 previously undocumented pitches in Muir Valley and the Pendergrass-Murray Recreational Preserve. Red River Gorge, Rock Climbs also showcases the region's climbing with hundreds of color photographs, including stunning action shots from Simon Carter, Dawn Kish, Jim Thornburg, Peter McDermott, Wes Allen, and Scott James.
