Details
Rock climb for two full days and camp backcountry with Becknology Rock Climbing Guides and Team Green at one of the most famous climbing sites in the Southeast, Red River Gorge. This event is great for climbers of all skill levels. All materials provided including instruction, harness, and a group to cheer you up the rock. All you need to provide is your own food and beverages, camping equipment, backcountry parking permit ($5 at most stores in Slade), and anything else you may want during the trip.

Located in eastern Kentucky in the Daniel Boone National Forest is the Red River Gorge Geological Area. Carved over millions of years by wind and water, this area is truly unique and wonderful. Within the area there are over 80 natural arches, historical sites, and miles and miles of trails made for cross-country backpacking or just day hikes. There are magnificent views, unusual vegetation and the largest concentration of arches and rock shelters east of the Rocky Mountains. Some of the rock shelters were used by ancient Indians to live in and supposedly one used by Daniel Boone!

Many arches in the Red River Gorge Geological Area can be found or viewed from the trails. One the best known and most accessible arches is Sky Bridge. From here, visitors are treated to a magnificent view of Clifty Wilderness. This portion of the Gorge has been set aside for the preservation of wilderness values and experiences. Clifty, named for its towering clifflines, was added to the National Wilderness Preservation System by Congress in 1985. The section of the Red River that runs through Clifty Wilderness is a Kentucky Wild River, and is now a National Wild and Scenic River, the first and only one in Kentucky.

Camping
We will be backcountry car camping (no running water) with Becknology. If you do not have your own tent, Becknology has 3 3-person tents available to rent for $20 each. First come-first serve. Please email Team Green to reserve a tent.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
