This climb is vaguely reminiscent of Think Pink or Spaghetti Western, except that it is shorter and wider. Jam and layback up the gently overhanging corner with a nice rest just over halfway up. Fire it to the top on good laybacking.
The Bloom guide lists this as 5.11- but the plaque says 5.10+ and that felt about right.
On the far left of the Sparks Wall is this left-facing, gently overhanging crack. Plaque at the base. It's probably a 5-minute walk from where the trail meets the wall and the area of Sparks of the Tempest.
#3 and #4 Camalots and maybe one #2 and one bigger than #4 for the top.

does this route have a plaque? we had thought that it was the slightly right facing flake that is immediately left of 'all that remains'. (??)

answered my own question - spark it up sparky is a wide, slightly overhanging left facing corner that lends itself to laybacking. it is located at the very far left side and does have a plaque.
