Contenders that didn't make my list:

5.8/5.9 finger cracks on The Widow, Bereft boulder
Rexrode cracks (Cat Crack, 10c shallow corner, Rexrode Inn, etc)
Eric's Crack
Hard as Nails
Lie Detector
Poison Oak Crack
The Ogre
Cameron's Traverse
Laker Girls
Greg's Face
Slap n' Tickle
KP's Demise
Bad Boy's From Detroit
Night Vision
Uncertainty Principle
Move Over Junior
Deport Johnny
PhD
Peace of Mind
Retropulsion

And it looks like I might want to add an arete category.

Hahaha, Slap You Silly is "burl". It seems pretty bizarre that a slabby pseudo arÍte could qualify as burl but for some odd reason it does seem that way.

Where is HDTV, or did I just overlook it? I'd put that somewhere in there. Classic problem.

Yeah, with the amount of arÍtes that Woodson has to offer it does seem that it would make sense to have a dedicated category. The Dragon would likely make the cut.

Lists like that are funny, trying to decide which should make it and which shouldn't. Consensus is just about impossible. Aids Victim is pretty good thin, but probably not quite as good as the ones listed. Sheesh, what about Airstream? Yeah, that's the problem. Pretty soon the list wants to start expanding until it includes everything.

Anyone climb the arÍte on the boulder across the road from double scoop? There's a nasty (and I mean nasty as in doesn't climb well) fingercrack facing the road and an awesome arÍte on the backside with stacked blocks to access the tr anchor. IMO this problem is way better than dragon arÍte.

I forgot about HDTV.

JonA, good call on those aretes.

Yeah, the Dragon isn't all that hard but it is kind of striking. Interesting, I wonder if I've ever seen the arÍte(s) JonA mentioned. Wait, I think I know the arÍtes... The main arÍte can be done either on the right side or the left side? If so, yes, quite good. Clean, and harder than the Dragon

Yes, and one side of the arÍte is quite improbable but the friction is just so good. Cool temps definitely help.

Also, the starface slabs deserve an honerable mention IMO. These climbs are so very temperature dependent. On a rare 50 degree overcast day they feel 10+ to me. Pretty much any other conditions and they are beyond my meager abilities.

Yes to the first 2 pics. Don't know where the 3rd pic was taken although I'd be psyched to find out.

Haha. Henny. Yes. I'm there. Tell me when.

Jon, that 3rd arÍte is downhill, east of California Night.

That last picture is in the Hippie Cave area, right? The rope hanging on the right side is on Welcome Home?

You got it Henny, Welcome Home, one of my favorites on the hill. Now, what's the second rope doing on the left?

Something hard I tried one day. Need to get back on that one. Got pretty close I think.

The two faces outside the corridor on the left are very good.

Maybe these have been posted here already, but I haven't seen most of them from the '86 comp. Taken from MP.com:

I always wondered what sat atop that broken foundation up there:

Circa 1936
