This is actually a bit better that its neighbor to the left, Inagodadavida. With inviting, low angle slab, this line sort of asks to be climbed. It may have been climbed previously. The crux is the approach. The top is guarded by good-sized loose rocks. It's probably only advisable to do it if you just have to know.You can climb as for Inagodadavida for the first pitch or start on looser terrain to its right.

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.
