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.

Right of Gypsy Devil V4 6B  CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : Warm-up Traverse Area
This is the route immediately to the right of Gypsy Devil, and the bottom is also a part of the longer wall traverse. Start just right of Gypsy Devil in a diagonal crack and move right to the arete with the use of additional horizontal/diagonal cracks. Continue up the blunt arete to a much higher better hold, and top out.This has obviously been done before, I just added it so it can be enjoyed as its own route. Feel free to give me a more accepted name, and I'll update ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

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!
