On January 20, 2004, the Red River Gorge Climbers Coalition purchased land in Lee County. This is a 750 acre track of land with gives private access to climbing just south of the Red River Gorge area. The Murray property was identified by the RRGCC as containing over 400 existing climbing routes and a number of quality cliffs to expand more routes of all difficulty levels. Since 2004, the land has been developed for public enjoyment though the creation of hiking paths, mountain bike trails, and of course more rock climbing routes. In October of 2012, the RRGCC made the final payment on the the land and it will forever remain open to climbing and other recreational activities.
