There are 3 guidebooks that cover the area. Red River Gorge North, Red River Gorge South, and Miller Fork. It is pricey to buy all 3 of them, and you will likeley not use all 3 of them. The online guidebook on this site is fantastic, but you will need to print stuff off and bring it with you. I also have heard people are having trouble finding the South guidebook as they are running low on copies.

Good advice from milspec - if you are looking to ball on a budget, you can use this site and print out paper notes. Works very well.

Good 11d's and 12a's? Holy shit, there's a million. My favorite 11d in the gorge is definitely The Infidel at Funk Rock. That climb alone is worth the hike in my opinion.
