4 out of 5 stars exploring the straight up option

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.
