I get all hot and bothered when I think of 'em.

Yosemite has a host of good ones, too.
Some are pretty easy to get to, being single pitches:

 Five & Dime
 The Thief
 Manana
 Finger Lickin'
 Mark of the Art

Others take some effort to get to, like that one on the
West Buttress of El Capitan and that one over on the Folly.
The first pitch of the Graham is pretty sweet crackin' too.

How about you, do you have any faves?

Last time I did Waverly I had my left hand in the crack and my right hand on the arete and slapped my way up it..... moderate 12b

Ladyhands edit: if you are diminutive that upper crack probably feels pretty solid.

Brutal cupped hands at the top of Five and Dime for me. Had some lovely gobies. What a great route and a fine 10d.

Compared to some real contenders, The fracture Although a beautiful climb is a little soft compared to some of the others, yes the crux might be .10d but the rest is a lot mellower. The .10d on serenity has to be one of the easiest and that 1st pitch of " whaatever" it is on the cookie is another give me.
Real .10d is harder then .11a........

I second that Mark. Like real 5.9 can be harder than 10b.
