Description 

This area hosts 2 of the prouder highballs in the tablelands: 'Los Locos' and 'Lawnmower Man'. Several other problems exist but these 2 are the stand-outs.

Getting There 

Just down canyon from the 'Molly Area', the main trail gets more confusing in this area. As you hop over boulders 'Lawnmower Man' will be up to the west and 'Los Locos' will be down in a pit to the left as you head down canyon.

Work straight up from a blocky starting hold on "slopey" jugs to a right sidepull up high. Now the fun begins, traverse left using a hard to find sidepull, not the obvious one, and a series of bad edges with terrible feet, all while staring at the boulder that you could hit if you blew it in a bad way. Finish the hard section with a scary pop to a sloping but well textured hueco. From here continue easily to the top of the boulder....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
