This is a nice little crag with a good collection of moderate sport routes to choose from. Most of the routes are not overhanging and tend to be more vertical. The far end of the wall is host to a number of fun moderates ranging from 5.10a to 5.11a. Bruise Brothers is definitely worth checking out.
From the Muir Valley parking area take the trail behind the barn down into the hollow. At the bottom of the hill head right, cross the creek, and follow the signs for Rebel Camp Hollow and then to the Bruise Brothers Wall.

Climb a low-angle slabby start to the more vertical wall. Ascend the steeper via reachy moves and big holds to the roof just before the anchors. Pull through the roof to arrive at the chains. Good route....[more] Browse More Classics in KY
