Ok I live in Northern KY. I'm looking for some easy to moderate multi-pitch climbs. Are there any in the Red? what about anywhere else. I'm looking for something to hit on the weekends. Or am I screwed to single-pitch crap.

Man, take a look at the online guidebook @ redriverclimbing.com - you should be able to scout out several classic lines that are moderate and multipitch. Look at roadside attraction, bedtime for bonzo, party time, blue biner, africa, etc. Single pitch routes outnumber multi-pitch, but please, don't overlook the single pitch as well. Some of the best in the country. If you are not satisfied with the results, then go to seneca, WV. Peace, love, and hair grease

Fortress Wall

Bedtime for Bonzo is 2 pitch 5.6
or

You clould do Snake 5.8 or Blue Runner 5.9 then do Where Lizards Dare 5.9+ as your second pitch.

Fortress also has some nice long one pitch routes:

Party Times 5.7 140 ft.
Horny Bitch 5.8 140 ft

Agreed, but Bedtime feels less multi-pitch than Partytime since you have the little scramble between the two pitches. Partytime has a hanging belay.

Roadside Attraction is a 2-pitch 5.7 but most people don't do the second pitch 'cos it is only like 20ft and you have to tackle some shrubbery.

So I spent the better part of 2hrs thumbing through my guidebook. I didn't realize that there were that many. Ya just don't hear much about them. Thx for the help.

Not when I was on it, unless you mean shrubbery on top ( not much if you ask me). Clip one bolt on 2 bolts anchor, go to the top, enjoy the view. You should find 2 bolts on the top to rap from (about 30 feet to the left from where you top out ) One 60 m. rope will get you to the top, second is useful for raping from top or you can rap back to 2 bolts and then rap again. Skip it on weekend or do it as last route of the day.
