Supernova climbs up a vertical, technical face with a crux near its fourth bolt on small crimpers. After the fifth bolt an overhang is encountered. Clip a sixth bolt above the roof, surmount it, and climb a crack up and left joining Focus for its final 2 bolts. Once you reach the main ledge, instead of clipping the anchor bolts for Focus to your left, continue straight up on big holds and very steep rock past 4 bolts to a small ledge. More technical face climbing past 3 bolts leads to a deceptive final sequence to reach the anchors.
Located in the Central Gorge at the Solarium between Focus and Black Hole. You can lower off this route with a 70m rope, or with a 60m rope you can LPL to the Focus anchor.
15 bolts to a 2-bolt mussy hook anchor

Hey Terri, just letting you know there's already a route in the gorge named White Dwarf. It's a trad route at the Atilla the Hun Wall.
