Description 

Cool and dusty and very well-shaded, look here for the classic lowball Anti-Hero (V5) and some other short burly problems like the titular Death Star 2000 (V8). Rock quality is good but occasionally sharp. Don't dab.

Getting There 

From the Los Locos/Lawnmower Man Area, the cave is just down canyon, accessible from the same pit as Los Locos. Climb in and look for the chalk.

Climbing Season

For the Sad Boulders area.

Weather station 3.8 miles from here

Classic moves: start with your ass way down in the dirt, left hand absurdly low on the arete and right on a good sidepull or undercling. Power out the steep overhang with positive flakes, underclings, kneebars, toehooks, and brute force to slopey-ish holds at the lip, then find the good flake out left to top out easily. This would for sure get four stars except for the extreme dab potential on the rock a few inches below your rear.
