Locals Only is the closest crag to the parking lot. It has some of the area's best rock.
To descend, rappel 115' from the top, 80' off the "Tube", or downclimb class 4 to the north.
From the parking lot, head east, this is the first rock encountered.
For more detailed info, buy the "Mammoth Area Rock Climbs" guide, by Marty Lewis and John Moynier.

The down-climb to the North from the top is tricky to figure out from above. And the upper crux is arguably harder than 4th class -- a balancy sequence likely scary and difficult while hauling the weight of a full rack of Trad protection and/or climbing rope.
. (So could be smart to first try climbing it upward ahead of time).
Also note this ...
The latest print guidebook (4th edition) by Marty Lewis suggests starting the North-side descent with a short rappel.
Anchor: As of August 2016 there is a 2-bolt anchor near the top which looks rather useful for that purpose.
