Rockfax Description
Follow Comes the Dervish to a good jug above its dog-leg crux. The safety minded will climb up and place a high side runner below the overlap and return to this point. Step out and right into Flashdance and head slightly down and further right to a good ledge below a downward face tooth in the overlap. Make a desperate few moves up to gain the overlap at the point of the tooth. Move slightly right and make an airy step over the lip. It is hard to climb direct - most people step right and place gear in Last Tango and then climb just left of this until they can regain the diagonal crack on the left that leads to the Comes the Dervish Belay. For an extra E point you can start up Flashdance and finish up Belldance at E6 6b. © Rockfax

Tried the onsight lead and took a lob from over the lip when my feet popped. Seconded a friend up it this time. Much less stressful!

Maybe left CtD a bit late. Didn't feel too bad, although it didn't feel E4... Went to far left at the top a nearly pulled a coffee table sized triangular block off. Watch out.

Got the line a tad wrong; followed holds to a dead-end and took a death-slide whipper on my back.
