Pacing the Cage is one of the most aesthetic lines on the Gold Wall, and also the most difficult. Pacing starts two systems to the climber's right of Acid Test Crack. This test piece has been described as the "easier" 5.13 at the Forks, but sees very few leads, despite the good gear. However, the line is striking, steep, and severely fixated on a generous portion of fingers, with a cryptic crux on thin edges, and Jedi body smearing.


Two systems to the right of Acid Test Crack, and left of the Serpent.


A ton of TCUs, medium/small wires.
