I'm sorta wondering if the third-pitch arete has been done...

From the ground to the top of the cliff, it's hard to top Jekyl & Hyde for quality & quantity at the grade.
Pitch 2 of Again and Again ( I love traverses ), and p-3 of CCK and the arete pitch of Directissima are a tie

I can't believe this thread is going to die at 22, when the photo thread is up to 800.

My 3 favorites might be CCK Direct, Nosedive, and Bonnie's pitch 1.

Hmm, maybe the thread should drift away because we're likely to repeat what's already been said. So I'll just mention some other great pitches no one has said.

Erect Direction p1 (maybe the best single pitch of 5.8 in the Gunks)
Double Crack (all in one pitch)
Layback (all in one pitch)

Somewhat redundant, I vote Limelight, Son of Easy O, and Middle Earth tonight. Tomorrow I'll likely think more highly of others, as my usual favorite is whatever I'm on at the moment.

Ive been hesitant to answer since there are so many...

I think a good contender for a top three would be:

Madame G's- In one pitch (or at least from the tree if you do it that way).

Keep On Struttin'- In one from the GT. Careful use of doubles needed.

10000 Restless Virgins- Shorter than the rest but SO good.

Having done Insuhlation this last weekend, I might have to change my answer. That's one super pitch.

Hey I just stumbled on this old thread and it is fun. I have a really hard time narrowing this down so I think I have to make 3 easier pitches and 3 harder ones.

Easier:

1. Horseman
2. Crux pitch of CCK
3. Snooky's P1

Harder:

1. Falled on Account of Strain in one pitch
2. Birdcage
3. Stannard's Roof

I'm in a place now where every 5.10 I try becomes my new favorite, there are so many good ones and I've still done so few.

Anyone else want to chime in?

Jackie in one pitch to the top has got to be about the best 5.5 out there.

Birdland in one pitch to the top has a WHOLE lotta climbing

Doubleissima

Those are my three
