a good route with a lot of short 5.8 sequences between full rests. climb the dihedral at the start of Birdcage for 20 feet or so until you can traverse far left along a horizontal to another corner system that leads to a roof. climb this corner (cruxy hand-jamming at mid-height, also steep at top) and swing left at the roof to easier climbing and the belay bolts.

4 out of 5 stars pin is gone

Traverse is the crux, especially with no pin there anymore. Would be scary to follow now. PG-13 for the second.

3 out of 5 stars Pin is gone at the traverse

Makes following a wee tad bit spicier! It would be a BIG fall/swing the way my leader protected the climb.
