DescriptionJust 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.
