About Red Resole

The Team

We are rock climbers with the mission of providing a reliable and local shoe re-soling service in order to keep fellow climbers on the rock. Climbing shoes are expensive, and buying a new pair every time the sole wears out can be frustrating. Let us get your favorite, perfectly fitting shoes back on your feet and feeling brand new.

Favorite thing about the Red River Gorge: I moved to Kentucky for the Red. Upstate New York doesn’t have a lot of outdoor rope climbing and I know many people who drive 18 hours round trip to come to the Gorge every year. I get to see some of my old friends when they visit, and I get to explore the walls here every weekend during the season if I can help it. I love the climbing community here and how it extends all over the country too. Not to mention the rock. The rock is beautiful.

Favorite thing about the Red River Gorge: Although I love many things about the Gorge, Copperas Creek Trail holds a very special place in my heart. My first backpacking trip was spent on the 4 mile long unmarked trail. The fun creek crossings, large mossy boulders, and the mystical waterfall at the end of the trail are some of my favorite parts of the hike itself. I highly recommend this trail to anyone looking for a fun adventure in the Gorge!

Favorite thing about the Red River Gorge: My favorite part of the Red River Gorge is backpacking in the Clifty Wilderness, especially Copperas Creek and Eagles Point Buttress. Whether I'm surrounded by massive builders in a creek valley or standing 100 feet above the treetops, the gorge always has an overwhelming ability to inspire awe.
