/ Recommended route....
Apologise for any spelling errors, wrote on an iPad.
Seeing as the logbooks currently don't give climbs labels like some guidebooks do, it's probably be an exhausting process to design.
The only implementable way would be to add another polling vote option, e.g. "Is this route most typified by the phrase "Pumpy", "Technical", "Thrutchy", "Powerful", "Crimpy", "Balancy", but even then those things are so subjective. There are many routes that would be impossible to say if they were more technical or crimpy, or whatever.
The best way to find good climbs is to sort by wishlisted or by ticklisted at your grade.
By far the easiest way to achieve something worthwhile would be to have an Amazon-style "People who liked this route also liked..." feature.
And I can understand why you might want to apologise for having an ipad but apparently the condition is curable.
Noooo, there are already enough people standing at the bottom of Stanage with guidebook in hand saying 'this one's only got 2 stars, let's find something else'
Overall, nice idea in principle, probably a complete ball ache to implement.
Why bother? It just takes way more initiative than has already been taken away by selective guides, the Coffee table books and the star system
Give the climbs a break eh?
