I think the bolted ones in those spots might be gareth's. Douglas's world famous link up with less than a body length of new climbing on NI wall is all trad.

I think you might need to start your own thread about new development guidelines at araps though, as this is meant to be about the grampians. i have this theory that you could just summarise your position with "every major area at araps covered by the select guide" and save yourself listing them individually, which seems a tedious enough job, and it's way less work than the individual crag approach to the grampians. I have a bunch of obscure cliffs in mind for when i can climb again, so you can be reassured they are not squished into full crags.
