Anyone have a random but fun challenge day for the red river gorge? Like climb the three main towers (Tower Rock, Jewel Pinnacle, and Minis Tirith) in a day while biking between or something of the sort? Or climb a 5.10 at every wall in PMRP. Looking for some fun (like type 2 fun) ideas for the season. If you've timed your challenge post em up!

Hey Cole! On my birthday last year we tried to do 25 trad pitches sunrise to sunset. We failed miserably, but below was our tick list.

I’m always down for some type 2 fun. Shoot me a message if you want and maybe we can link up on something cool.

That’s a solid list. If you had to choose the best 5 what would they be?

Of those, Stick 9, Arachnid, Africa, Caver's Route, Whiteout and DAB are all must-do.  Shining is fantastic, but it should be twice as long.

That list is at least 3 hours of hiking! Wall of Denial is a fairly long (although flat) hike.

When did Creature Feature become a trad climb? I would remove some of those areas and add Pebble Beach, and Long Wall. Rock wars and Autumn are way better then most of those climbs on that list. But, that it a big day for sure!

Bedtime for Bonzo
Jewel Pinnacle
Foxfire
Cavers Route
Never More
Five classic multi pitch routes at five different areas. Cut out never more if you want to keep under 5.7. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
