Gotta say - I like where a pitch in a multipitch climb is so special that it warrants a name in and of itself - eg The Grand Wall on The Chief in Squamish. Two of its classic pitches - The Split PIllar and the Sword of Damocles, are both highlight climbs in their own right and well named for the features they traverse.

It's mainly a product of former aid climbs isn't it? Is that why it's no so common here -not so many big walls in Oz?
