This years Rocktoberfest at the Red River Gorge was again a success. Great weather, great climbing, and a great event put on by the Red River Gorge Climbers Coalition. The purpose of the event is to help pay for the Pendergrass-Murry Recreational Preserve (AKA Muir Valley) which hosts some of the most aesthetic routes at the Red. Area legend and developer, Porter Jarrard once told me the climb Cell Block Six in the Muir Valley area is the best route he has climbed at the Red.

 

Friday night kicked off with crate stacking competitions and a viewing of The Scene to get the masses ready for splitter climbing conditions the next day.

Saturday morning shoe demos were held at Miguel's where the Quantums and Arrowheads seemed to be a big hit. Climbers scurried around the campground putting in breakfast orders, trying on shoes for demo, and gathering their gear for the day. The day started off a chill in the air and progressively got better. Conditions couldn't be much better for climbers and competitors that day; sunny and 75 with low humidity.

That evening at the event site there was more crate stacking, vendor booths, a band, dyno competition, raffles, and awards from the competition.

Thanks to the RRGCC for putting on such a fun positive event for climbing access! To find out more about the RRGCC and how you can help preserve climbing at the Red visit: http://rrgcc.org/.
