A nice long adventure up the east face of the Kampsite spire, consisting of two short bouldery cruxes mixed with some fun moderate climbing. We were psyched to leave the spire bolt free!

Start by scrambling up the mini spire in front of the east face. Place a piece in the questionable flakes to the right of the main seam/crack. Pull onto the flakes and then traverse left into the crack with good side pulls and feet. Fiddle in some rps and figure out how to gain the good crack. A nice rest follows,then prepare yourself for another crux protected by another rp getting to and pulling the bulge above! Easier climbing through flakes until it shares the last 40ish feet of runout 5.4-5.6 climbing with the original 'Kampsite' route.
