The start of He is Truly a Great Airplane (HITAGA)...

Description 

(AKA HITAGA) From the large, treed ledge just above the Bobcat Cringe, scramble up the huge detached flake, step across to the upward-left-arching ramp. Go up the thin corner in the otherwise blank face to the large ledge about 2/3 up the face.

The crux is bolt-protected, thin laybacking near the top.

After the crux, you must mantle up onto the belay ledge, which has a two-bolt, chained anchor. It is also possible to exit the ledge on the left and join the next-to-last pitch of Solitude.


Location 

Lies directly above the Bobcat Cringe. Starts on the large, treed ledge about 10' above the anchors.


Protection 

Bring small wired nuts and cams to about 2".
