I'm pretty sure "Hobnail Boots" is WI4+

I think they were on pitch 4 and had one more short pitch to the top. That route is STEEP. They were probably four or five hundred feet up in this shot. We did a 5 pitch route WI3+ on the Bard-Harrington Wall that hasn't been in since 1997. Lots of fun!!!

Was this part of Doug's 2-day seminar?

That weekend Doug was privately guiding a client on some harder lines. We had a different instructor, working for Doug, as a part of his 2-day seminar. The first day we reviewed skills and technique and the second day we did a very fun 5-pitch route. This was Miguel's second time with Doug's company and it was my first. I highly recommend his 2-day seminar, you'll get much more out of it than you think.
