This is not a new route at all, but rather, a new combination on existing territory. The last several years the mid-height corner of 'Blackout' has been coated with bird poo and has been unappealing. One can instead start up as for Fading Light and climb to about mid height of the corner. There, a system of flakes starts on the compact arete between the two and rises up and right toward the shared roof. This can be protected to the left as for Fading Light for a few moves, then on its own before pulling a crux, around the arete and to the right just above the pigeon poo. Continue hard right up towards the right-most end of the roof and to a crack system out to the right of either corner, riding this up and eventually left to a steady pine tree, and then left under that and to the top.
