Topic - Logbooks - shortcomings observed

Jamie B - on 13 Jan 2013
Over the last few days, with lots of folk obviously looking out for ideas and inspiration:

One route soloed in decidedly sketchy condition and logged with the suggestion that it was a grade lower. Saw it the next day and it definitely wasn't - anyone going looking for an easy tick of a classic route would have had a shock!

The final pitch of one route climbed as a variation finish to another. Both routes logged without explanation, even although only the top pitch of the former was complete. Anyone trying to climb the complete line on the basis of it having been logged would have also got a shock.

I'm not totally against the logbooks, but we do need to be aware that we are completely at the mercy of the person who logged it - much reading between the lines may be required...
