The Kampsite spire is the furthest east spire in the cluster between Eyetooth and the Spire 6 mass.
Belay from the notch between the Kampsite spire and it's neighbor to the west, a small notch with loose flakes and chockstones. You can approach this from the Spire 5 Goat Route, then climb over up and down little spires towards Kampsite until you reach the notch. Can also approach from the 5-6 gully.
A little ledge on Kampsite leads around the slightly overhanging north side to a good crack with old piton. Some protection there (#3 cam, smaller nuts/cams above), then runout about 30 feet of 5.4/5.6 to the top on solid large crystals following path of least resistance. No anchors, long webbing required. Double rope rappel if you go into the 5-6 gully.
