You may need to start the internal fires for this one... Pyrokinesis is a step up from Fade To Black and also a very different style. Begin as for that route, but just before the dihedral gets steep move right to a stance in a slot capped by a small, triangular roof. Clip a fixed wire and a bolt and perform a very thin, cryptic, bouldery crux. Above here are good holds and a long stretch to a second bolt (protectable with a blue TCU). Cop a rest if you can, and then launch into the bouldery high crux. Sustained edges take you to the top.
Thin pro (to 1/2"), a fixed wire and then four bolts up high. A green Alien or blue TCU in a horizontal - the first piece - helps prevent wires from zippering up higher. After this is a key #5 BD stopper that is placed blindly to protect the first weird move - currently this wire is fixed. An optional blue TCU protects a runout between the first and second bolts.

Yet another amazing route at the Waterfall. Thanks again guys for all the work putting these up. Two cruxes on this one. Lower technical crux and a distinct high enduro crux. I've never been so happy to see an offwidth crack!

Never went near the off width pillar at the top because of how creaky it looked after close inspection while establishing the pitch. Staying left of it provides the enduro tech finish to an all in all classic technical route.
