Cnn.com has a story about parts of Kentucky being flooded. Can any one give us Easter hopefuls the inside scoop?

I have been climbing in the red for 16 years the is always somewhere to climb there. even in the worst of weather. I am going fri and sat. I will give a report on when i get back. My local contacts say there is alot of water, but it should be allright in a few days.

The Gorge must be soking up the water before the desert style heat rolls in for the summer.

Locate slade Kentucky... from there you can go North, South, East, and West; it would be hard not to run into a crag.

Buy the guidebook to the area by John Bronaugh... there is also a small version with the more popular climbs listed in it by Porter Jarred.

This site has great info on it. Look in the routes database.
