Red River Gorge Fri Night Vid

A few weeks ago we ran an excellent video on climbing in the sandstone paradise of Red River Gorge, Kentucky USA.

Colin Delehanty, the same film maker who made the last flick has put together a few more videos, you can check his Vimeo Page.

This one is a short film on the area called Roadside. Wolverine Publishing's description of this crag in their guidebook is:

"It doesn't get much better than this. Five-minute approach, amazing routes of all but the very hardest grades, and a big overhang to keep everything dry. Roadside Crag has it all... Ro Shampo, the route whose grade has been discussed on the Internet as much as the presidential election, still manages to spit off the occasional 5.12 climber despite the pressure of being downgraded to 5.11d. Don't underestimate it!"

A newer edition was just released and is available now here:

I imagine that if you have been and know something of the place then it probably does capture the ambience really well. As someone who hasn't been I'd prefer something a little more revealing in terms of what the place is like rather than what is a very nicely crafted artistic sort of video. Perhaps I'm just too utilitarian?

The production on that video is awful. I found it really difficult to watch.
