Having struggled to identify exactly what I did in relation to the names already included on this database I've added a new list of routes with names as they will appear in the new YG guide due out soon. Thirty five of the 52 problems shown on the Leeds Wall web-site have been named and identified for the new guide by Malcolm Townsley who climbed them all prior to 2009 (some back in the 1980s). Some will be duplicates of named problems already included here but I've referenced all the ones I've added to the Leeds Wall topo which will be kept on-line to avoid future claims for new eliminates.

I don't know how these problems relate to the guide on Leeds Wall website. Would you be happy for me to update these. I am not sure how the picture topo below corresponds to this either. Who had first ascents on what?
