BETA PHOTO: Midnight Rock, left side.
A. The Cage 9+ R, gear....
This route climbs a clean brown wall that starts from a large ledge high on the rock, above the Pirate Radar roof. It is about 30 feet left of Karma Kamelian. The best approach is to rappel from the top. The ledge can also be accessed by climbing one of the lower routes. An excellent thin crack leads to some exposed face climbing. Move right at the top around the large block to the anchor. A great pitch.

If done just so, this is a continuously challenging, interesting pitch. However, it's easy to take the wrong sequence, after which placing pro is hard and getting back in sync problematic unless you bail off route to much easier ground.
Beta Warning: Stay on the right side of the crack. The left side seems better at first but it leads you off route to inferior climbing.
