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.

Gypsy Devil V1 5  Colorado : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : Warm-up Traverse Area
Sit start matched on a jug and [probably] swing over to hit the shallow crack with your right hand. From there, you use some smaller holds to carefully position yourself to be able to reach the bomber boss jug at the top. This is a fun problem that had obviously been climbed before we hit it up....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

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!
