I spied a nice looking line while approaching Dwarf, a ramp cutting diagonally across its south face. Following are a few photos showing where I went. Once on the summit I saw what must be the standard route, the west ridge which I descended that has one class 3 section just below the summit.

The ramp I took has one opening class 3 section (see photo) and finishes in a 15-foot slab inside a left leaning dihedral (easy class 3) that dead-ends in an 8-foot vertical wall with good holds (low class 5). With some scouting around lower, it may be that the low 5th class end game can be avoided - not sure.
