Around to the right from the Orion’s Reflection wall is more good rock, though the wall is not as high. There, Jason Keith and Alan Hunt established the Flight of the Golden Camalot (IV 5.11). The route begins with a ramp, followed by a step left. Pitch two ascends steep cracks. A hand traverse left (5.10+) avoids an off width. The route’s crux is a 5.11 finger crack in a corner. Above are occasional 5.10 and much high-quality 5.8.
