Freda Du Faur: Climbs

There seems to be no list of Freda's climbs and first ascents on the web!
Presumably she put a list in her book though I haven't seen a copy.
Sally Irwin's book "Between Heaven and Earth" doesn't have a list of climbs,
nor a chronology, nor a family tree (I get so confused reading biographies!).

So here is a list of first ascents [to be checked].

Freda's First Ascents (15 in only four climbing seasons!)
These are first ascents of a route, not necessarily the peak.
