Visiting for a week

Post by aalsaber » Fri Sep 02, 2011 4:58 am

Hey everyone,
I'm a California boulderer and I'll be in KY between the 5th and the 12th. Was wondering if anyone would be so kind to take a day or so and maybe show me around the Red? I can adjust my schedule to whenever you're free.

Random things to note:
A) Where's the best place to camp? Should I expect lots of mosquitoes or other wildlife(where I normally camp we have plenty of bears)?
B) Where am I most likely to run into other climbers?
C) Are there any spots where I can find some routes ranging from 5.8(for my non-climber girl) to maybe 5.11's or 5.12's?
D) In a perfect world my sport climb would be short, powerful, with big holds(deep pockets, pinches, and jugs)

If anyone could help me out with any of these questions/notes that would be great.

A) Miguels is the climbers only camping. I like Koomer Ridge campground, each campsite is a private area. http://www.fs.fed.us/r8/boone/districts ... koomer.pdf
B) Miguels
C) check the online guidebook. Left Flank, Fantasia, Muir Valley, The Gallary, Military.
D) Too many to list, go to online guidebook, quick routes, tags I-R, Juggy. A list will come up and you can filter through the short ones. You guys might really like fantasia and the Gallery
