Start about twenty feet below the Cave, and climb up and slightly left on engaging steep flakes and thin cracks (micro-nuts are helpful) to a rest stance at the fork (5.9). This part is just the warm-up, but it's damn fun in its own right. From the stance, take the left branch (crux) with excellent gear is usually placed from poor stances (the right fork is Final Chapter 5.11). Belay on a sloping ledge, then scramble off or hand traverse left to the overhanging crack of Outlander, which is 5.10d.
