The left-hand end of the quarry has a clean wall of fine rock. It is less popular than the other areas but worth checking out especially if the Main Wall is busy. The routes in general are poorly protected. The top-outs have given concern to some climbers and a rope down to the top of the rock might be required by some. Holly Buttress is a narrow spire of rock just above the path.
Approach - From below the Main Wall walk right along a track at the base of the escarpment for 150m to the wall. Holly Buttress is around 50m before the the White Wall just above the track

The right arete has some wonderful holds higher up but has some big brambles that can encroach from time to time.
