Camping and Climbing at the Red River Gorge!

My friends and I are looking for some cool places around the gorge where you can camp relatively close to a wall then hike right to the crag.

We usually camp by military wall, have about a 5 minute hike in the morning, warm up and climb some routes there. Then move on to where ever else it is we're in the mood for.

But I'm sure there are plenty of places at the Gorge this can be done. I've been looking around Indian Creek a lot but haven't been able to find anything solely with google maps.

Any thoughts?

I've seen people camping along the creek that goes by the trail to Fink Rock. My understanding is that it is the same deal as camping near Gray's branch (Military wall), e.i. you need backcountry camping permit.

Cool, I'm not 100% sure where Fink Rock is. The most climbing I've done down there is Miur Valley. Which obviously you can't camp at, so I'm trying to broaden my knowledge of the area. That being said I do a have thick stack of permits from the summer so far.

But that's not as much as an issue any more as the ligaments in my ankle I sprained last night trying a dyno at my gym and hitting a bad / weird landing.... Needless to say I have plenty of time to research. =/

Thanks for the help though.

Duh, I meant FUNK rock. It is in the Eastern Gorge Region.
