I'm losing hope with this level.  That last backroute almost completely broke the level.

Resolved the level.

I think this is a classical case of: You cannot enforce A without allowing B.

I suspect the problem is the starting part. I would suggest changing the intended route of the start part to something more easily enforcable. You can use nearly every skill here in a somewhat helping way, so this is backroute heaven from the get go. Sometimes the intended route needs to be adapted in order for the rest of the intended tricks to be enforced, I think this could be such a case.
I would also guess that the most elegant part of the level is located in the 2nd part.

I know the level is not going to win - it's far too convoluted and obviously full of patch-jobs.  I've got no more energy to keep fighting the losing battle.

I admit I'm kind of surprised at how much trouble "Two's company..." gave you.  I guess it goes to show that the solution may not always be obvious to anyone who isn't the level's designer.
