BETA PHOTO: The Martyr Closeout Closeout Direct Good Vibration...

Description 

Same start as GOOD VIBRATIONS. Traverse left under the large roof using the horizontal roof crack. Clip a bolt and turn the roof on the left. Follow a clean seam to the top anchors.

A direct variation (5.9) can be climbed that ascends straight up the wall to the corner of the roof on good holds.

Note that the first gear placement on the original and direct lines is a good 20' above the belay.

Protection 

Cams to 2"
Doubles in the 0.75" to 1.5" range

CONDITION REPORT 
I poached the Trango Flex-Cam that was "stuck" after the roof so don't count on it if you are leading.

Also cleaned out an old Friend from below the roof.

Keep leaving that booty behind folks! :)

We had a ton of fun on this route. Small cams on the way up to the traverse then save your BD 0.5 to BD 0.75 cams for the traverse. A nice 0.4 protects the move from out of the roof and the bolt helps keep the rope from dragging in the crack. A BD 0.75 or 1.0 and BD 2.0 should get you through the finish.

Don't miss this one!

Climbed and added the direct variation today. I'm sure that someone has climbed this variation before as it is too obvious a line not to have been done.
