Doesn't see a whole lot of traffic but has some pretty nice lines. Several nice technical climbs to break up the jug hauls you find at nearby areas. Usually pretty shady and not at all good in any type of rain.
From the Muir Valley parking area, hike the gravel road instead of the the regular approach trail. After descending the steep gravel hill, the road intersects with the road/trail along the valley floor. Turn left here and hike a short distnce to a stream crossing. Shortly after the crossing there will be a sign on the right labeling the hideout. Hike up the hill and find yourself at the base of boltergeist

Boltergeist 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- E2 5b KY : Red River Gorge : ... : The Hideout
Great climbing that never seems to quit. Soft for the grade, Boltergeist makes a terrific choice for a leader's first 10b.Thin moves at the start make stick clipping a prudent choice. Climb on good edges and ledges past several bolts and a bulge to a nice rest ledge. Continue up the face to more purely slabby climbing at the finish....[more] Browse More Classics in KY
