A. The Cage 9+ R, gear....


Begin just right of Around Midnight. Climb the right margin of a green face, just left of a big chimney/gully. At the top of the face move over a bulge to gain an overhanging left leaning corner. Climb the corner and step over the lip to the anchor. An exciting climb.

10 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Thanks for the great route, Vaino. Getting started in the diherdral is the crux, but it stays tenuous and hard till the anchors.

Tough times getting over the roof. With some traffic, this could become a better pitch; footholds still a bit spuzzy.
