Favorite 13a in the gorge

What's your favorite 13a in the gorge and why? Because "I sent it quickly is not an acceptable reason." :)

Re: Red River Gorge North guidebook ebook

If I purchase the guidebook ebook can it be loaded to two devices? I would like it on my iPad to actually read it well but would also like it on my phone to take to the crag.

Thanks

Re: Treadwall Auto-"stop" Question for Treadwall Owners/User

Ours does the same thing. In fact, I can't climb on it properly unless someone is managing the dial. It does stop for my husband but only if he is on the right side and weights his foot hard. Pretty annoying that I can't use it alone.

I don't know if you could say I ever got out of "training" mode. We have been climbing non-stop pretty much since last fall. (With the exception of 4 weeks I...

Re: Eric Horst books

Yep, that was the question! Thanks for the answer. I don't feel like I need a book. In fact, I would prefer not to buy one. Do you have any links to offer up?
