The upper committing crux of Secret of the Beehive...
The usual Bishop Buttermilks season, November to March, weather pending. Quartz monzonite rock. As with all the Buttermilks outlying areas it tends to be rather secluded.
Pass the gate from the uphill Buttermilk parking lot and take your first right (before the Get Carter Boulder) and head up a steep hill. Park about 200-300 yards uphill before the ridgeline and look left. There will be two large domes. Hike between these domes and head down and through a ravine. The Secret of the Beehives (I presume named after the Spanish Film) rests just uphill about 200 yards after the ravine business.
