Rockfax Description
A testing pitch on the far left of the promontory that samples some surprisingly diverse territory. Start at some raised ledges at the seaward end of the promontory.
Move up easily to just below an elongated protruding blob and then make some difficult moves leftwards up a finger-crack to a small overhang. Move left around the overhang into a narrow corner; make a move up and then quit this rightwards onto the right-hand face which leads quickly to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb easy ledges to a difficult set of moves to gain the "blob" hanging from the Comes the Dervish like overlap. Move left to clear the overhang and gain the groove. Move right onto the face at the horizontal crack and whiz to the top.
Crux well protected with wires, and eases once the commitment to gain the groove is made. May be a lot harder for the short

Is the line in Rockfax for this wrong? The start is definitely not 4b. Probably closer to 5a. Apparently starting up the arete is 4b?

Lovely route on solid rock with some nice fingery and technical moves early on then easing quite a bit. Good pro from small wires. I thought it worth the VS4b given in the Westcountry Rockfax - but then I am fairly 'vertically challenged'!
