is a splitter also a corner?

i say no.

i'd even say you can't lieback a splitter.

well you could, but that would be bad form.

i.c. splitters: excuse station, slice and dice, optimator (mostly splitter), nine lives,
supercat, sacred cow (killer splitter finish).

The Fox, RR
Our Father, RR
Sons of Yesterday, Yosemite
Yin and Yang, RR
Atman, RR
Red Zinger, RR (haven't done this one, but it looks incredible)

I'll also agree on Reeds and Triassic, both are beautiful and excellent climbing.

How about east coast splitters.

This is the best splitter I've done lately, anyway. Thomas Boesgaard took the photo, on a fine seaside climb at Kullen.

There was this perfect 1 to 1 1/2 inch perfect 5.10 splitter I once did in Icebox or one of the those canyons at Redrocks. It is probably the only place I left a cam to get down. I needed about 10 cams all in that size range and only came with 4. I kept climbing down and cleaning and going back up and leading some more. I finally gave up and lowered off leaving a cam. Sweet route but I was totally unprepared.

Face can be fine, and corners can be cool,
But splitters are supreme, and that's my golden rule.

Found a little crack now called Touchstone my first year in the desert. That was all she wrote. Hooked for life. No cure.

i'd love to see a stiched together photo of touchstone like the fine jade one above. gotta be one of the longest continuous cracks i've ever climbed.

edit: not great, definately not what i was looking for, but it'll have to do for now

hB edit:corner DAB, don't make mike come in here and define splitter for you again

As far as splitters go, nothing, and I mean nothing, compares to Moonlight Buttress.

i.e: Corner Dab

Only the crux is a corner. Above the crux lies a 210 foot uninterrupted purple camalot splitter in black sandstone.

I love that stitched shot, Handsome B. A SuperDuperTopo would have them for every route.
