This area has five routes to date from the main buttress of Flight of the Bumblebee (13a) over to Primate Tools (11a). The two routes on the main buttress are long, awe-inspiring lines with great views of the canyon.
Once at the main trail walk about 3 minutes to the left, passing the obvious Iron Horse wall. Follow a faint trail from the left of the Iron Horse wall that meanders up the hillside to reach the big white and black streaked buttress.
