Description

Just right of Pulse (5.11d) and Static Cling (5.12a/b) there is a short arete with 3 bolts on it and a chain anchor, this is Flatline (5.12b/c). Though very different from its neighbors to the left it shares the short "boulder problem" feel. However instead of super steep and powerful I found technique, body position to be the most important thing on this route. Many of the holds are open handed slopers but crimping is encountered before you clip the chains.

Start on very easy ground to the first draw then stand tall and clip draw 2 before heading left to the arete and making some tricky moves with interesting foot work to some pretty good holds allowing you to clip bolt number 3 and a relatively moderate finish gets you to the top.

Very nice rock quality and interesting moves.

This is actually a pretty good little route. It's much better than it looks, and the climbing after the crux is really cool, if a bit short-lived. Apr 26, 2008

I really enjoyed this route as well. Worth the trip up the hill if you ask me. Definitely favors the tall. For some reason the top reminds me of a gritstone route. Dec 19, 2008

Hmm, you all are making this route sound mighty fun. I've never been on it. Got shut down by Shock Therapy a few years ago. Perhaps I should try this one instead. I like short routes :) Nov 3, 2010

yeah, check it out! i like it better than shock therapy for sure.... its less powerful and more technical... there is a sloper on it that is just fantastic.... that being said, it is a little height dependent but still fun for shorter folks... Nov 4, 2010
