We are working together to protect climbing in the Red River Gorge

The Red River Gorge Climbers' Coalition has worked over twenty years to secure access to the cliff line found on National Forest and private land in Eastern Kentucky. In 2012 we paid off the mortgage and purchased and continue to manage the PMRP. In 2013, we bought the MFRP and owe $42,000 in 2017 to have it paid in full. In addition, the RRGCC works to educate new climbers through stewardship presentations, and ethics reminders. To repair the roads, trails and bridges, make the mortgage payments, secure new land, and educate climbers, the RRGCC has a combined operational & capital budget of $100,000 for 2017.

Please support access to the world class climbing of Red River Gorge by making an annual or monthly donation to the RRGCC.
