Description Suggest change

This is a group of boulders sitting at the base of a large formation (The Crypt) which is located midway between the Love Nest and King Dome. Home to the super fun Illicit Sweetie (V0) and the appealing Nicole Overhang (V6).

Getting There Suggest change

Parking for The Hang is located 1.4 miles south of Hidden Valley Campground and 0.3 miles north of Cap Rock in a paved pullout (room for 3-4 cars) located on the east side of the road.

Hike east following a marked trail past the Love Nest Area and when you reach the western edge of the Planet X Boulders take the left fork in the trail past the Planet X Boulder heading towards the eastern side of a large formation to the northeast (The Crypt) where the boulders are found.

Due to it's location it may even be preferable to approach from the King Dome Area near the Hall of Horrors.
