Spent the morning with a hack saw and new blades(absolutely no chance with visegrips).  Took care of Oby Won, as well as Bolt Line, Truth in Advertising and Easy Terms in the Meadows.  If you know of other routes with similar issues, please post here. r
Outstanding.  Thank you for the community service, Richard.
As Jake said, Masterpiece has one extra q-clip, although I am not sure it is 'replacing' the more worn-out clip or not.
If memory serves, Junko has three or four q-clips at the anchors.

Hopefully I will be up at Rumney this weekend and if I see redundant anchor gear which ought to be removed, I will post it here (and/or remove it myself).

I was up on Masterpiece and War and Peace yesterday.
I think it is OK to leave the extra q-clip (on the right-hand bolt) on Masterpiece as is for the moment.  All three q-clips show some sign of wear.  The third q-clip did not seem to make cleaning the anchor any harder or more confusing.  I was able to drop the rope through all three clips rather easily while still tied-in direct to the anchor bolts.  And one has a good stance at the anchor.

What was a little confusing is the presence of a single glue-in and a skinny quicklink located about 1 foot higher than the current anchor on Masterpiece (or was it War and Peace, now I can't remember for sure!).  Why is it there?  I can't think of a good reason other than it was placed there before the current anchor bolts, and it would make too much of a mess trying to remove it.

The extra bolt and little link is on War and Piece.   I have no idea what it is doing there either.  it's a beefy glue in though so it's not going anywhere
