The climb starts in a right facing dihedral on an overhanging thin hands splitter. Climb the thin hands past a short bulge, and gain a large ledge. Clip the first bolt, grab a rest, and then continue up the slightly overhanging arete/face to a large ledge, clipping 2 more bolts on the way.
Set up an anchor and bring up your second.
Descend via a chain around a tree about 30 feet right of the route.
The start is about 200 feet left of Cool Breeze. It starts at a thin hands overhanging splitter in a right facing dihedral. Bolts on the face are visible from below.
Camalots: 2x #1s, plus 3 quickdraws, possibly 1 #2.
NOTE: Two large pieces, #4s, are essential for building an anchor.

The friable holds on the arete section of this climb make Dervish a spooky and, well kinda shitty climb. But I guess that's the Monument for ya....

I thought this route was fun and unique. The rail that goes up the arete is pretty varnished and solid, didn't notice any thing loose except on the ledge before the sport section.
