Description 

Supernova climbs a deep dihedral between "Zenith" and "Rainy Day Surprise." Stem up to a zero TCU placement, then continue up the dihedral to a midway ledge below two tightly wedged blocks. Above the blocks the only placement is a two inch gold camelot for the obvious constriction in the otherwise wide (5-7 inch) crack leading to the anchor. The burly crux comes in the steep wideness above this placement, and this gold cam is the only piece that can protect the run to the anchor on the left (shared with Zenith).

Protection 

Double rack to 2 inches. Save a gold camelot for the wide finish.
