I didn't find Don's composition too much harder than Leary's. I agree that difficulty
is definitely subjective - as a disciple of place notation I find the likes of 

Brightwell, Shepperton and Eire very difficult to ring due to the multitude of 

additional places to learn, which crop up where you least expect them to.

For me the hardest 23 spliced, which appears to be unrung, would be PABS' 'breweries' 

composition (http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/saddleton/comps/ss8.htm) - certainly an 

unorthodox use of the phrase 'triple changes throughout'.
