I like my star system. I feel that I have a high tolerence for adventure so a rout needs to be really brushy, really loose or stupidly bolted to not get a star. 1 star and you definatly should check it out as it is tons of fun all the way up to 5 stars for as good or better than anying of the grade that I have experienced. So I guess what I am getting at is that if most of the routs @ an area get at least some form of a star hopefully it will get folks out on stuff they would never get on when the star system is limited to just the 2 or 3 best climbs @ an area. No stars at all and folks often chicken out and only do the ones everyone knows about. They que up like lemmings rather than try a trad climb that they know little or nothing about. Spurt is different. Anything with bolts and they will give it a shot.
