Best iteration yet of the definitive guide book to all climbing, trad and sport, in the Red River Gorge. The book is both beautiful and exhaustive. Approaches are meticulously described and mapped. Routes can be located on either the full color photo topos or the GIS imaged top down diagram of the base. Additionally Wolverine donates a significant portion of the profits to the Red River Gorge Climber's Collation to support their advocacy and acquisition projects.
