I was working more from the definitions of hidden and select. I don't think anything in a select guide is hidden and anything in a select guide should really be a gem. And as Free Beer is not so much a gem as an acceptably nice route, I came up with an extended list of acceptably nice routes. Nicer than some of the "select" ones. But maybe I am also putting my situation on other - I have climbed everything up to about 23 in the select guide so I really am looking for "hidden" routes. Couer de Lion really is a gem. If you haven't done it, get on it.
