This area probably has the highest concentration of problems at the Dark Side. The area includes a long traverse and a number of other problems.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail until hitting a long wall with lots of obvious problems and a small cave in the middle. The Cube is about 20 feet downhill from the cave.

From here, throw big for a desperate fingerlock, and bump your hand until you hit the perfect fingerlock. You can finish on the first ledge or continue to the topout. It is a lot more difficult if you choose to just use jams and no face holds for your feet and hands.

Thanks for the quick update, jmapping. I was also pleased to notice a few of the other areas got sorted too. I'll be honest that I was skeptical of the new organization, but it's proving to be a lot more beneficial then I initially thought it would, so thanks!
