Above the upper section of flagged path that runs from the Plantation car park to Stanage Pole, is a series of short walls with an interesting collection of routes, the most renowned of which is the Dawes desperate of Weather Report. Several of the cracks provide interesting (easier) tussles at their respective grades.
