Description

The only known route on this narrow slab is described on p. 83 of Rossiter's guidebook: "Climb straight up to a ledge with a couple of pines, and belay (5.5, 90 feet). From the left pine, climb up a series of cracks that leads to the top of the slab (5.5, 120 feet)." This seems accurate, except that "the ledge with a couple of pines" is about 70 feet up, and p.2 is about 130 feet long.

Location

Rossiter states: "Begin at the bottom of the slab, just left of a large pine."

Protection

None on p.1. A little on p.2.

I climbed this 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 [west] 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
