Not sure if it counts, but the Mark of Zorro pitch on Zodiac (the Great Circle pitch is awesome too).
Coarse and Buggy, Josh
Last pitch of New Dimensions, the Valley

Has to be a ton more out there that I'm forgetting.

I can't believe that none of you losers mentioned Meat Hooks or P2 of Cornflake Crack!

Seriously (even though I'm serious above), lots of good mentions and pics in this thread.

Yeah, both pitches (but especially the second) of Cornflake Crack are amazing.

Great Dihedral on South Howser Beckey-Chouinard - 3 to 4 pitches long and in the sun. Pretty much glorious.

Wildflowers on Snowpatch. 6 or 7 pitches long, continuously vertical, shaded and cold. Somewhat forbidding but great climbing.

Finger of Fate. So geometrically clean.

Echo Tower. Unusual in that the "dihedral" is formed by two block towers meeting on edge. As you climb you peer through to a mirror image dihdral on the opposite side of the formation.

The Fonrouge-Somebody route on the backside of the Torre Principal at Frey- a long, golden perspectival convergence. Probably 180 feet if it's an inch and stuck full of pins, it's pretty thin. That one's stuck with me.

I guess the Zebra, but things were just getting started then. Tis-sa-ack, Half Dome.

El Matador and the Moratorium, you don't forget those. +1

In Pursuit was wet every day last week, we never got on it dry. But we did it.

Unreported! Like the long purple-TCU corner on the Egg Wall...the one that dropped some eggs. Sorry Rich.

Rockwork Orange, Mt Woodson, 5.10b Short but sweet at one of the best crack climbing areas around, even if its "just" a top rope.
