Some of the better problems here include Wormhole (V0+), Boulder Crack (V2), Lucky Star (V2 R), Satellite Boulder Left (V3 R), Planet Y (V3 R), Jerry's Kids (V4), X-Men (V5 R), Turbolator (V5), and Planet X (V6 R).
Getting ThereParking for the Planet X Area 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.
