quality crag Mr Fiend
Yes, all names correct but you missed out route 9, the gully on the right:
Right Wing - M 3c(mild)
Urgles - 27/Jun/07

and Direct start to 7 will probably go at 5c/6a

Looks top.
Surely needs the obvious girdle to be done to reach full maturity?

LOL. Mr King doesn't like girdles. There is a vague line there but finishing up that E2 having come in from the right would not be ideal.
The project will be very worthwhile though.
