I like the view of the rock and feel at purgatory. I like the view from buzzards roost and the hike to auxier ridge.

Auxier Ridge and Courthouse Rock is one of my favorites too.
Going into Mariba Fork was pretty cool too. Dropping down the hidden slot under the rhodos to reveal the trail made an impression on me. The climbs were ok, but not so much of a wow factor doing them.

From on top or from the bottom?

Cause the view from on top Bedtime is worth it. I would say Fortress. But from the bottom, the gold streaks of the gold coast are quite awe inspiring.

motherlode - maybe not the prettiest crag, but the view from the undertow as the wall wraps around through to gmc is impressive.

Solar/Gold Coast

First time to the Gallery last weekend, and boy are there some cool looking walls there.

I prefer the Top of Half Moon at sunrise when the fog is still in the valley and there are no drunk douchbags to deal with. Too bad it's tourist central

pocket wall
gold coast proper
funk rock

i'd have to go with raven's rock as tops though. that thing is just amazing sitting up there, waiting, calling out to be visited.

From the bottom, Raven's Rock. The first time driving into the gorge, on my first climbing trip, I saw that and immediately said "What's that? I want to climb that."

I love the colors on Left Flank by Table of Colors...the rock on that side has so many beautiful colors :)

Wall of Denial has a very aesthetic approach. The hike along the river is nice, and there is a cool cave on the way too......
