I agree with Dana on Unholy Wick, and indeed Grey Dick gives it a star. I keep meaning to go up there again and do the 5.9 variation (Bow Tie Ceiling), which I recall as looking nice.

I think I like Diana better though.

A nice combination of pitches is to do Erect Direction P1 to CCK direct (which I think is one of the all-time Gunks classics at 5.9-), walk over to The Last Will be First rappel, and then do the nearby top pitches from the GT ledge: Diana, Unholy Wick, Jim's Gem, and Modern Times. (One could, of course, go further North on the GT ledge too...)

That cluster of flakey looking, buckety stuff on the right side seems familiar, but hell .......

Yes, Diana is a very nice route and it's never occupied.

I think this is Le Teton, just above the rest on the arete.

Fooled me. Le Teton must rival Birdland for the title of Most Appearances on the Guess the Route Thread!

If I may comment on this entire thread, I'd say that one may photograph an otherwise familiar route in such a way as to make it nearly unrecognizable. I suspect that even the Uberfall descent route can be so photographed. I don't berate those who have done that; in fact they make identification more challenging.
