Mine of Mourning V7
Sit start. Pull up using a big undercling, take the dodgy-looking pinch and throw for the lip. A crafty heelhook helps.
David Kopp, 2005
Land Mine V8
Sit start with right hand on the starting edge from Land Speed Record, left hand on an undercling. Slap right hand up the Land Speed arete and again to a huge jug just back from the lip. Midgets need not apply.
John Palmer, 2005
Land Speed Record V6
Climb the hanging prow mostly on its right side from a sit start. There are numerous sequences but all start on the good incut edge and almost all use the hanging pinch.

Old Pushovers Never Try V2
Sit start on the vertical wall around the corner from Land Speed Record. Climb the wall left of the arête.

Old Rockovers Never Die V1
Sit start on the vertical wall around the corner from Land Speed Record. Head up & right, finishing up the arête.
David Kopp, 2006
Neo-Problemism V7
Sit start just left of Ka-raka Slab in the small notch. After the initial awkwardIness, you can either climb the blunt arête or head right & finish up Ka-raka Slab.

The Ka-raka Slab V4
The thin slab, which ever way you can. A jump start makes it easier.
John Palmer, 2005
Clumsy V4
Climb the scruffy arête from a sit start.
