Description

Climb the thin crack just left of the "Pee on Dee" bolts, remaining fiercely independent until throwing in a perfect hand jam on the left side of the roof and topping out just above the "Pee on Dee" bolt anchor.

An easier variation can be done by stepping left into the chimney at the roof (5.8).

I did a free ascent of this route using trad gear on 11/6/04 and named it "Retro-Crack" as a juxtapose to "Tony Bubb’s Little Stick".

Protection

Three small cams and one small stopper to the bolt anchor of "Pee on Dee". Using the bolt anchor is a little awkward and you may want to take some medium cams and long slings to setup your own anchor.
