Pioneers of Tassie's Best Climbs 13-Sep-2016 At 7:45:16 PM rodw
Personally I reckon the whole star thing is a bit BS anyway..let peeps make up own decisions..everyone has a different opinion anyway. Though i do reckon a FAer giving there own routes stars (or close mates of them) is like have ya dad/uncle judging ya gymnastic routine at the Olympics...natural bias me thinks.

I understand the reason guide book authors throw in a star system is a guide after all..but really what is the worth of a system that is so prone to personal opinions...

I mean how many time you been sitting around a fire and such and such told you to go do an awesome route the next day and you do and in your opinion its total pox...was the original person wrong...or do they simply just have a different opinion as to what is fun than you do?

And when it comes down to it who cares..its just climbing and a stupid made up sport anyway with stupid rules/ideals that no one can agrees om..which is lucky as then chocky wouldn't have any content.
