The Hideout Rock Climbing
Past the crux on Boltergeist. Photo by Huong.
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

Pretty tough start. Don't go too far right or the climbing gets easier and not as fun. Pull the the really thin technical start to a technical slab. Climb through several bolts until you reach the steeper jug pulling section to the anchors. Fun line. Bottom felt a little harder than 10c to me but it was we and I had very little skin left on my fingers from two weeks of climbing...[more] Browse More Classics in KY
