Was hoping to get my niece and nephew out on real rock (they've gym climbed a few times).  Does anyone know of a top roping spot at Red River Gorge that would be good for kids (short approach, very easy grade(s))?

The Nursery In Miller Fork or Animal Crackers, Practice Wall, or Guide Wall at Muir Valley all have a good amount of easy climbs

I know you can set up an easy top rope at Front Porch Wall. I think you can at Practice Wall and Recess Rock too. All of those are at Muir Valley and are graded around 5.4. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
