This lesser visited portion of the Quarry actually has some good climbing although much of it tends to be more technical and on-your-feet climbing than the normal Quarry climb. Routes here tend to be on the shorter side and range from 5.7 to 5.13a with the majority in the 5.11 and under range, in fact this area has the highest density of 5.10 routes at the Quarry - although most of them aren't very physical.
