The crux is low down where the crack is thin. Easier middle section then a trickier finish. Originally graded E3 6b, now E2 5c. The grade may be only Indian Creek 5.9 if you are strong with thin fingers!
After entering the quarry, cross to the other side (big slabs visible down in the upper hole to the left). The obvious zigzag crack in the upper wall is the route. Walk uphill on slopes right of the quarry nearly to the top of the workings and get to the base of the climb via a good track beneath the uppermost level.
