The first AMAZING corner I did was Course and Buggy out at JT. Now I'm addicted and was wandering what everyone else's favorite corners are.

Great White Book, TM

Haven't done it, but Enduro on Astroman has got to be in top 5

El Matador on DT, haven't done it either.

Enduro Corner- amazing

Hospital Corner-killer

Coarse and Buggy- thin! took a nice whipper off the crux, undercling, pulled 2 pieces!

OZ-whole route is killer, especially that corner pitch

Sunshine dihedral at Smith Rocks looks really cool

The Arch of Time 5.10 Titus Canyon, Indian Creek (new route).

Bottom third of Chouinard/Beckey, S. Howser Tower. Simo.

Someone had just died on Coarse & Buggy when I did it, that was falls, no hangs for me.

Abracadaver, Cochise Stronghold.

Karl, I thought "Peace" was straightforward knobs, not a corner :-)

Rat Race
Jorgie's Crack
Portent- though you climb the face
