Cubicle Crag is a smaller crag just down-hill (East) of Shadowfax. It appears at times from various points along the approach as a small boxy rock just below the lower summit of Shadowfax but is deceptively large.

Perhaps only their shorter lengths keeps them from being really good routes, but the distance to reach them is what will forever keep them relatively untraveled.
Approach Via Shadow Canyon from the South Mesa Trailhead. Continue up the trail for quite some ways past below the Devil's thumb, and come to a brief clearing in the trees, from which you can look back and see Shadowfax, to the Southwest. You can even see on the right side of the West (higher) summit, the Northeast facing flakes of "Thirteen Words for Choss" which is easily the worst route on the crag.
