There are a number of minor/outlying areas that might be worth a look if you have done everything else in the area!
Just one steep blank wall with one decent problem; located 50m to the left of the main quarry. 
Approach: located off the A635 Isle of Skye Road. Park opposite the farm. Walk 100 yards up the road towards Holmfirth then follow the footpath through the gate up to the main quarry. Access the wall by traversing the hillside from the main quarry. 
Access: See BMC Regional Access Database
The quarry is on CRoW land; however the local farmer is a stickler for the rules especially with regard to dogs, be warned!!!!! 

1. Psycho 2 Arete, 5+
2. Psycho 2, start in the centre of the wall trend leftwards to finish, 6c.**

Khymer Rouge

Pennine Quarry (GR SD981127)
Tiny quarry not marked on the OS map. It has a few hard problems; Khymer Rouge in particular is worth the 5 minute walk.
Approach: Park in the layby just before the left bend when driving up to the M62 after passing the Rams Head. The quarry is just visible from the layby. Walk up the road towards M62 once round the bend hop over the wall on the right and follow the track up to the quarry.
