The first area described is in the top section of the quarry, home to a few minor routes. Many of these are polished, a reflection of their grade rather than their quality. There is some loose rock (and wobbly bolts!)

Gargle Blaster
Short and high in the grade. Using the crack on the right drops it to a steady 5.

The short line just right. Two bolts to a single-bolt lower-off.

This is a high-level girdle, but just climbing to the lower-off on Dr. Who? is enough for most.

Mucker's Wall
Climb the wall on the left-hand side of the arete, but without the crack on the left. Using the crack is A Fit of Peak, 6a.

A Fit of Peak
8m. Climb the wall on the left-hand side of the arete. Mucker's Wall follows the same line but without the crack on the left.
