Sport climbers - why don't you climb trad? 27-Jan-2013 At 3:58:19 PM davidn
Not sure that's really fair Tor. I think (predominately) trad climbers generally give out far fewer stars than sport climbers. Pretty much the whole ACT Granite was written with the approach that if you wouldn't walk over hot coals while being subjected to a whipping to get to it, it doesn't deserve a star. 3 stars means you'd give up your shot at heaven (or whatever reward your particular religion offers) for it.

IMO people will most often give stars to a route when it's at their limit - maybe that's why sport climbers give out more, because you can be closer to your limit. Which is a big part of why many lower graded routes are great but have no stars. You tend to forget something that's easy.

BTW, there are closer trad cliffs and tors than Booroomba for north-siders. (and how's the shoulder??)
