These two have mostly routes up to HVS although there are a few E1s and E2s in there as well.
Others in the series will not necessarily follow this grade pattern. For example, the Pembroke guide.

Still early stages. We have done much of the ground work but still need to get a lot of photographs. Ideally I would like to publish it next summer, but that may depend on how lucky we are with the weather conditions.
