Tim kindly lent me the Peak bouldering guide and a very nice guide it is too. In it they list the names of the first ascentist - where its known - beside the problem description.
I had a plan to place a top100/200 problems sorted by grade at the back of the book. I was planning to give the FA'ist there.
The problem with listing them in line are they (a) it might be a bit pointless if most aren't known (b) its a lot of work to establish who did what (c) can never but sure it will be correct.
What do people think is it important information?
