The big cross on Sky Pilot.
This is a brilliant climb. Incredible, streaked stone, difficult and enjoyable movement, plus it's 100% natural. The crux lies right off the ground- undercling to mono and snatch a crimp, then a moderate rest is followed by a full on rose move to two finger pocket, unwind.. awesome.

I can't think of a better word than "brilliant" to describe this line. On par with any of the best hard sport routes in America.
Since I'm bored at work, one small nitpick for the sake of preserving history: Although I'm sure there is no official definition, I don't think the cross move qualifies as a 'full on rose move'. "Rose Move" comes from the classic Buoux route "La Rose et Le Vampire". Here is what a Rose Move looks like:

I suppose its possible that a really short person may need to do an honest-to-god Rose Move (or a regular-sized person could contrive one), but I think most people will just do a big cross as in the pic I posted. Whatever, its a rad move either way!
