Hi,
Those routes are on the left wall as you walk in. The names have changed, then were settled on, check climbza wiki, thecrag.com. Don't rely on 8a, that is just a site for logging climbs. People log all sorts of wrong stuff on 8a and no one removes the errors.
You should find a bouldering guide somewhere. Or ask 'The Jimmy'

On the link you sent @toprope, Where is phalanges arete, I looked for it last time I was at the quarry but I see no bolts to the right on 20% for woodwork.

One would assume it would be on the arete but it's not included in the photos on thecrag or in the western cape rock book.

Any ideas where it is?

Phalanges Arete is on the right side but all the gear has been stolen .The bolt stubs should still be there . The last time i checked the two galvanised rings on the top were still there
