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

2016 Seasonal Raptor Closure on the Diamond MORE INFO >>>


(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.


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


Bring small wired nuts and cams to about 2".
