Selection the 50

Jeremy, Selecting the 50? You are right I did not just grab the guide book and copy. The selection only came down to about 20...i'll explain. Please remember that these 50 are an opinion just like any guide book and it's stars. Certain routes are classics with little debate e.g The grand wall, Freew...
