I have climbed a low traverse of the whole quarry from right to left called Technical Dancer Font 7A+ V7. A video of it is on Youtube under Heptonstall bouldering. John Wilson.
You can also get to the rocks from walking through the woods from bank foot - emerge from behind the houses at the bottom of the hill. Just follow the windy path up and it runs below the right hand outcrop on the main quarry.
|A lovely spot on a summer's evening.|

|An good spot with enjoyable climbs, its regularly climbed unlike many of the smaller quarrys in the area making the rock itself relatively clean.|

|The directions in the Yorkshire Grit guide are a bit confusing - don't take the narrow 'walled path' next to the entrance to the social club car park, as this adds an extra 15 mins walkin! The crag is actually only a few mins from the car park - take the wider 'walled lane' opposite the car park, then turn left through the new housing estate to bring you to stone steps leading down to the crag.|
