According to Brad Young's excellent guidebook , there are five parts of this formation with established routes. Here are approach instructions to the NE side :
1. From the westside parking lot, take the Balconies Trail (NOT the North Wilderness Trail), from the far end of the Chaparral picnic area.
2. Turn left at the junction with the Juniper Canyon trail.
3. Cross about five footbridges. At the 'climber access' sign for the Destiny Wall ('Destiny' is another name for Dos Equis, 5.8 R), turn left and cross another footbridge.
4. Go straight, uphill towards the Balconies (turning right will take you to the Balconies Caves, Chockstone Dome, etc). There will be a few switchbacks on this trail.
5. At another climber access sign for Tilting Terrace, turn left and follow a climber's trail to the NE side of the Flumes.

As of 12/5/2015 there is a large rock that looks like it is going to go at any second. Directly below it is the belay station for the second pitch of Tilting Terrace and for Cool Daze. Use extreme caution when belaying and don't touch the rock unless you mean to take it out of the wall. It can be seen in the photo of Cool Daze. It is on the right hand side in the moss streak.
