40 forward roll ups at the back,
30 backward roll ups at the back
14 forward roll ups at the front,
8 backward roll ups at the front.

Standard methods so no learning.

Pipe's cyclic six would be around a quarter peal length, though with only
four methods: each part called LABCCBA.  Has anyone produced such a
