Outguard Spire, 5.10d

1st Pitch- 40m- 5.10c/ Move to the far right side of the ledge and follow the cracks up and back left. The first traverse move left is committing, via gear and quality of rock off the deck. Once you gain that first move, the traverse left is easy over to a short mantle that eventually leads to the base of a short dirty corner accepting micro to small gear. The ledgy aspect of this corner is cruxy. It goes much easier as a layback, but that obviously is committing with the ledge below. Continue up and right via easy ground past an old bolt to a comfortable gear belay on a small ledge.
