This is a link-up of other routes to create a long line that maximizes the climbing on the buttress (in terms of length). Climb the first three pitches of The Daddy (to the big ledge). 4th Pitch: start straight up from the left end of the big ledge then trend left into a chimney with a couple of small trees (belay). 5th Pitch: go all the way up the left slanting chimney (it's not really chimney climbing except for a move or two), to a belay left of the left facing dihedral that will be above you. 6th Pitch: traverse left until you are in a right facing dihedral below a large loose block (there's a fun move in the corner, with lots of air beneath your feet). Go up the corner and behind the loose block (there's plenty of room to avoid the block), then go up the face to a tree belay near the top of the buttress. A short 7th pitch will take you to the very top of the buttress.
