hey all

next week will be my first trip out to the Red. Pretty stoked, except for the weather forecast: rain from sunday to wednesday (at least).

veterans of the red: will it be worth the week in the rain? Are there a good amount of moderate climbs that will stay dry?

Really depends. In general, yes, Red is climable in the rain.

But this time of the year, when things are still generally damp from snow melt, I would be more worried about finding dry stuff in the rain.

It also depends on how hard you climb. If you are looking at 5.12s, you would have a pretty good selection. 5.10-- not so much.

Oh wow it's March already?

I guess I wouldn't know since I live closer to the north pole than the equator. England sucks.

You should be able to make it work. Use the online guidebook and use its filter to see only climbs that stay dry in downpours. I've never been out there quite this early in the season, but in late March I've never run out of things to get on even when it rained all week.

That is crazy talk. Just crazy. Or maybe you just aren't hungry enough. Get after it a little more during the day and that pizza tastes like heaven on earth. Hell, there have been more than a few days after climbing at the red that I might actually have been served a shoebox with cheese and didn't even notice.

If you had dissed the camping or the scene I'd be right there with you. But Miguel's food is fucking awesome. Good breakfast (waffles and burritos), great pizza, rice bowls, etc.

I drive to the Red for Miguels! The fact that there is climbing nearby is just a little bonus.

I always hear conflicting reports about the pizza, and wonder if the raves are the result of climbers being ravenous scavengers after a day on the rock, or if it holds up on it's own. For example, how would it hold up against NY city pizza and the like?

Same goes for Ale 8 One. I have never sampled either.

Miguels pizza is thin crust with not much sauce but good with lots of toppings on it. I like it cuz i don't like a lot of sauce and they put lots of toppings i like on it.

Ale 8 is kind of a you're at the Red so drink some Ale 8.. it's mostly just lemon/lime kinda thing. but tasty.

i also had no issues with the "scene" even though it was packed to the gills last year for the Climb Fest or whatever it is called.

Yeah, I thought the Pizzas were good (although I only ever had some when someone dropped one on the floor and I was the first one there, and when some non-climber dude overheard me talking about selling some HB's to afford gear if I didn't catch a ride to a bank soon and gave me half a pizza saying "I don't want you to have to sell your brass clippy things"). The artichoke toppings were super tasty.

I LURVED Ale81. That stuff hit the spot after climbing.

It's a different thing, but it's good even by city standards if you know how to order well. (Note: your choice of toppings is the difference between success and failure.) For rural Kentucky, it's unbelievably good (although both Rose's and Stillwater are also worth a visit while one is in Slade).

Heya! I'm also making my first trek out to the RRG. Next weekend though, so all of these tips are awesome.

Question: I've got all my own rope, quickdraws, anchor setup etcetc (no rack yet sadly!) but I was wondering two things:

1. How are the sport climbs?
2. If'n im needing a partner is it easy enough to meet people at Miguels?

Cheers!

1. Some of the best in the world.
2. Yes, as long as you are not a knob.

Miguel's tawk? I LOVE this topic?

Pizza is good. I like Pies'nPints at the New better, but Miguel's pizza is awesome as far as fresh ingredients and price goes.

Ale8 One is just soda full of empty calories. I have no idea why climbers are so psyched on it. Yeah, it's local, and everyone else is drinking it, but soda? Really?

The camping scene at Miguels just sucks, and gets worse every year. Crowded, noisy at night, and the most disorganized parking lot I've ever seen. The kitchen facilities are disgusting, since staff gets so overwhelmed on busy weekends, and campers are fucking slobs. The last two years, the major weekend demographic at Miguel's has moved away from even core climbers, and now the bulk of people there are college-outdoor-club types who put on their harnesses in the parking lot before driving off to make wrong turns on the way to Muir Valley.

Most of the bullshit at Miguel's could be fixed if he just upped the camping to $5/night, but he seems to rather focus more on the restaurant, which brings in more money anyway.

End of rant.

It depends on what you are looking for. But yes, there are at least two other "climbers campgrounds" in the area (Lago Linda and Land of the Arches, both nearer Muir Valley/Southern Region), as well as several state park campgrounds, and even dispersed primitive camping in the Northern FS regions.

Hey all. Just got back, and thanks for all the advice.

Despite it raining and snowing most of the week, I had a great time. Spent a lot of time at the Roadside crag and military wall as they kept pretty dry. Had an amazing time

as the topic has changed slightly...

I'm now a huge fan of Miguel's. It's hard to beat $2 camping, $1.50 showers (8 minutes long, more than enough time), covered cooking area, cheap wi-fi, good pizza, and the amazing community that climbers bring.

Amazing Community? You better not have been one of those douches that were blabbing on about how drunk they were at 2am on Friday night.

Ale 8 is weird but strangely addictive. It's kind of like flat ginger ale. I really loved it.

I also thought the food was good, but not the best pizza I've ever had. Great value though.

Last Friday night or every Friday night? Seems I've never had a weekend at Miguel's that didn't end up with one of the following happening:

1) Drunk people yelling "I'm SOOOO drunk!"
2) Naked people in the cooking area. (Thank you St. Patrick's Day 2010)
3) Drunk people thinking my tent is their tent.
4) Drunk people thinking that they should yell at their buddy in the next tent for an hour.
5) Being parked in to your parking spot.

Actually, except for 2, all of these happen EVERY TIME I go to Miguel's. Once in the last year was enough. Never again will I camp there.

I find it interesting that people hate or love some camping areas. As far as the people using the facilities go, how would Miguel's compare to the MUA at the Gunks?

FUCK that. Five bucks a night instead of two? If you wanna spend five bucks a night to camp come out to Horseshoe Canyon Ranch, they will be more than happy to take your $5 to camp, as well as $5 to climb - and for the record, I got WAY more sleep at Miguel's than I ever have at $5 Horseshoe Canyon.

So, if it went up to $5/night, you would not come to Miguel's?

Thanks, you just proved my point.

So, if it went up to $5/night, you would not come to Miguel's?

Thanks, you just proved my point.

Nice! I like it - actually not applicable though 'cause I'm not the one creating chaos, doing stupid shit or annoying others.

But by all means please go to Horseshoe - they need your business - and your $5.

Most of the bullshit at Miguel's could be fixed if he just upped the camping to $5/night, but he seems to rather focus more on the restaurant, which brings in more money anyway.

End of rant.

FUCK that. Five bucks a night instead of two? If you wanna spend five bucks a night to camp come out to Horseshoe Canyon Ranch, they will be more than happy to take your $5 to camp, as well as $5 to climb - and for the record, I got WAY more sleep at Miguel's than I ever have at $5 Horseshoe Canyon.
