Good effort.

Surely Parthian's had more than six ascents?
Dunne
Grieve
Gresham?
Honneyman &/or DeGay?
Ed Brown
Tom Briggs

That's only a list off the top of my head, so I imagine there must be a few more. Obviously if the uncertain ones haven't then it changes things a bit.

Gresham hasn't neither has Honneyman or Degay, and i don't think Ed Brown has either....

In reply to Adam Lincoln:

Fair enough, my mistake.
I misread the report as Ed Brown having done it too, but clearly I can't read properly...
