Climbed the first two pitches of the Daddy as is, including stopping at the tree short of the ledge. Simu'd up to the ledge. Started P3 about 6 feet right of a smaller tree. Pulled through a roof/bulge, through some sparsely protected shallow pocket and lichen terrain and gained a large diagonal hand crack with good jams and good gear. Traversed this 15 foot hand crack, moved up and around a death flake and built an anchor at a stance at the bottom of a vegetated crack. Moved through the crack which ended just a few feet to the right of the dihedral on p5 of The Daddy proper. Continued this short pitch straight to the summit.
