Description 

Similar to its neighbor More Than A Handful, this route ascends the undulating face.

Location 

Immediately to the right of More Than A Handful on Rollinstone. Climbs right of a prominent pair of bulges. Shares anchors with Falsie.

Protection 

Bolts and chains. This route was retro-bolted by the first ascensionist in 2016 and thus no longer requires token gear. The chains can be accessed from above for toproping.

Is this route sposed to be named areola? Fits better on the crag. Didn't know areole was a word. Learn something new every day

fun route. two cruxes, the second one at the bulge being difficult to figure out. improbable sequence getting over it. loads of fun.

Bolts were consistent throughout this climb (even in the first 20') Saw absolutely zero need for gear other than draws.

A bolt was added last year by me and Jimbo so no gear is needed.

Thanks for the new information. I revised the route info for this line and "Falsie".
