/ Any advance on three?

Here's a xmas timefiller inspired by a recent topic here in the 'Alpine' forum. Someone thought a question about Route Major on Mt Blanc was about a different Route Major in the Cairngorms. There's actually at least one more Route Major, on the Little Brenva Face of Ben Nevis.

So, any advance on three separate mountain routes with the same copycat name? Generic topographic names like East Ridge, Central Buttress, Left-hand Route don't count. Bonus points if you've climbed them all (as I have with the three Route Majors), nul points if you haven't climbed any of them (in my case the three Supercouloirs that I can think of: on Fitzroy in Patagonia, Mt B du Tacul in the Alps, Deltaform in the Canadian Rockies).

Not an advance on three, but I've done two Gervasutti pillars.

Slight technical difference, but central pillar of frenzy & central pillar of Freney!

Only the two mind you, so no advance on the three.

Not sure how many but I wouldn't be surprised if 'Raeburns's Route' doesn't run into dozens!

In reply to rif: Do you allow Yellows? I have done Yellow Edge/Spigolo Giallo (Tre Cime and Avon), Yellow Spur (Eldorado) , Yellow Peril (Clashrodney), Yellow Groove (the Pass), while there must be innumerable routes called Yellow Wall (Pass, Barrier Mountain, Tryfan? and there is the Gogarth one). These last might well count as generics along with other colours, but it would be amusing to see how many other additions and Yellow variants people might come up with.

seeking info here... are there more Japanese Couloirs than the two I can think of (Denali, Everest)? Does the Devil have more than two climbs (Arete du Diable, Mt B du Tacul, France; Teufelsgrat, Taschhorn, CH)?
