Duble Helix originally, of course, but that's since been reclassified as a
Other than that, four triple-hunts:
Didymous Delight 36 - 34.16.58 - 56.18.34 - 14.38.56 - 36.58 14 12386745
Vincula Delight - 50 - 16 - 70 - 18 - 12 - 30 - 14 - 50 - 16 -
70 14 1237950486
Oddjob Little - 34 - 184.108.40.206 12 1534028967
Lendal Bridge Little - 34 - 14 - 1450.36.50 12 1634290785
And two four-hunts:
Chain-link Differential 34 - 220.127.116.11.90.18.ET.10 - 1T - ET 1T
Mandarin Differential Little - 3T - 12 - 1T.36.1T.36 1T 1967852340ET

I'm sure you could have found all that out yourself in about five minutes.
Anyway, why the interest?
