Getting There

Approach as for the Bitty Buttress route, then descend ~200 feet in a southeasterly direction to the slab. Part of the slab may be barely visible from the approach to Bitty Buttress. It lies well below and to the southeast of the Short Cliff with Three Cracks. It is a long way east of the Wall of Voodoo.

I climbed here today with Leo Paik and Doug Redosh. From the base of the Bitty Buttress route, we descended southeast for about 200 feet, then third-classed a long way east, across loose ledges, until we reached the start of what Rossiter describes as pitch two of Inagodadavida.

We top-roped the lower pitch, which is unprotectable, by belaying the climber as he traversed east to the "left of two trees," then using the tree as a directional for lowering him to the base of the route. Beware of loose rock; it could end up on the highway.

Doug led pitch two, up funky cracks that diagonaled slightly to the east. When I followed (thirded), I climbed to the right of the cracks, up the middle of the clean slab, which provides unprotected climbing on good rock (5.6-). The top is guarded with a fence of loose blocks. Nov 24, 2015
