Ginger danicing on Dee is Dancing, Indian Creek
From know Pistol Whipped routes, walk 8 minutes right. Stop 20 ft left of the one large lonely tree. Climb 2 thin cracks. Start with left thin crack on slabby face, transfer to right thin crack. After left crack ends, right Crack ocasionally widens, providing some hand jams and rest. The Anchor is just left of the crack, where it goes chimney wide.This climb is unusual for Indian Creek, requiring good feet placement outside the cracks.
The climb was put up in memory of Dee Johnson, a Devil's Lake,WI lady who climbed into her 70s and inspired many with her broad, wholesome smile and her flowing, effortless movement on the rock.

Steep and quality route that offers something different than most other climbs at the Creek- technical footwork. The rock is a bit soft over here, so heads up.
