Cause for Commotion

Mike out on a cold day...
When reaching the top of the hill, one of the first lines that people notice is this sharp arete next to the trail. There used to be two good flakes on the left of the arete, but both have now ripped off and the scars are quite obvious. The quality of the line may have improved now that any loose rock is gone, but it doesn't climb quite like it used to. Sit start with the good rail down low, or use an optional crimp out left along with the rail and pull up to the arete. Grab the edge that is a foot lower than the flake used to be and work your way up the arete with techy feet to the jugs at the top.
On top of the hill, this boulder is called Try Again (aka Jelly Rock). The striking arete is right next to the trail, just right of Classic Crack. Downclimb through the chimney.
Lisa figuring out the sit.

the funny thing about this problem and the others on this boulder is that the downclimb is harder than the actual send lol. i had a guy do classic and was stuck on top of the boulder for about 10 min before coaching him on getting down lol

This problem is extremely fun! But be careful some of the holds are waiting to peel off!

One of the flakes ripped off on me the other day. I don't believe that it changes the grade at all, and you can still hold on to where it came off. Sorry guys

Both flakes are now gone. The left flake ripped off and left a good edge down low, but there is nothing left of the right flake. It climbs a little different now, so I updated the description.
