I just tried a couple of the new (new to me) easy bolted lines out on the left side of Torrent Falls last weekend and they were pretty cool. Does anybody know what they're called?

Mike, kriso knows of that site... he is a regional coordinator for the Red River Gorge Climbing Coalition. He is the coordinator for Canada (like anyone from Canada cares about climbing in the Red ) JUST JOKING... enough with the jokes, eh.

I can't find any route descriptions at www.rrgcc,org except for a page of "classics." Where should I look? Thanks...

The left route is tourist trap, 5.10a; next is 5.10c/d; and the route on the right is 5.10b. One of the other names is rest assured. Not sure which, but I think that is the 10b. All pretty cool routes. The routes to the right of Wadcutter go at 5.8 and 5.6 or so. Don't know the names of them.

Kind of along the same line... I noticed a few bolts going up the center of the huge overhang in the back part of the "U", about 50 yards left of the 13b by the camp fire or so, starting above a big boulder.

I don't think I saw it in my friend's guidebook, and just getting through the first two bolts looked insane, let alone the overhang above, so was wondering if anyone knew it's name/what it goes as, or if it's still a project, or...?
