In the Best Single Route thread, Murphy'sLaw says he agrees that

...if you haven't done p2 of Birdland, then you haven't done Birdland...

This got me wondering about other climbs this might be said of (he mentioned MF too).

So what do you think---if you haven't done pitch 2 (and 3?) of _____, then you haven't done it. What climbs would you fill in here?

I'll kick it off with one more: Broken Sling.

(No doubt, some master of humor will say something like High Exposure. The question is about climbs that are often rappelled after the first pitch.)

A little less clear cut are those where P1 is a good climb on it's own at a lower grade than the overall route, such as:
Falled On Account of Strain
Erect Direction
Modern Times
Hawk

But I'd think most folks are honest enough with themselves to realize that if they only did P1 of these and not the money pitch, then they haven't done the route. That's different than the other routes mentioned where P2/P3 are of similar character and difficulty of P1.
