Well if we're going to include NC, THE layback is P3 of Skyhedral on Cow Rock (next to Laurel Knob). Think flawless 100' 10a right angle dihedral with a finger crack and 300'+ of air under your ass. Guess where the name came from. The Womb is pretty good, but even at LG Hyperbola may be better. Of course, just go west to the TN/GA/AL sandstone for dozens (at least) of mega classic one pitch five star laybacks.
If you're gonna be stupid, you gotta be tough.

The Great Corner. One of my favorite climbs anywheres! It did climb a lot better when the fixed pins were all there. Yes that is a fact. It was more fun to climb and lead with the fixed pin.

Isa Oehry following.  This was sans 2nd pin..

These give a good view of the entire route. 400ft of slab 5.6 to 5.10 depending on the route taken to the steeper but still slabby 100ft 5.11a corner.
