My apologies for mudding up the system more with additional traverse problems on this boulder, but this line is definitive and good quality starting on the S face of the boulder and finishing on the NE arete.

SDS on large jug flake left of the corner and move up and right though crimps. Hit the arete pinch and round the corner staying low and matching the large angling flake. Make the long reach to the vertical slot/pocket and continue moving low and right matching in the slot/pocket. Make a final crux sequence using side-pull edges and a pinch to get you to the NE arete with jugs and flake that leads to a juggy top-out.

Isn't this the same as cube traverse?

Keenan, they are all very similar, but I started around the corner and on obvious start holds, and traversed all the way to the right arete on the cube face. Take it as you will, it's all contrived, but its something extra to play on if you're looking for something harder than V4.
