I recently learned the cage method for the 4x4, because I was intending to use it to solve larger cubes, rather than the reduction method. I decided to see how possible this was, and tried converting it to the 5x5x5. I solved The bottom edges, the bottom corners, oriented the top corners, permutated the top corners, solved the top edges, solve the bottom edges, solved the top edges, and that's where I need help. After about 2 and a half hours of frustratingly trying to come up with algorithms to solve the middle edges without affecting the rest of the cage, and a good 15 or 20 minutes searching the internet, I couldn't find anything. I decided to post this on speedsolving forum as a last resort. So, has anyone else come up with algorithms to solve the middle edges of a 5x5?
