Booroomba accident 16-May-2016 At 4:48:31 PM gffc
I would guess that anyone who says that the guidebook should contain as little information about the climbs as possible isn't the audience for it anyway. No one is going to buy a guidebook that's just a catalogue of FA heroics but I'd be happy to buy one that strikes the balance that ODH is aiming for.

I've gotten lost often enough there so updated directions, maps and route descriptions will be great to have, but noting unusual gear requirements for easy classics seems like it's entirely appropriate for a guide that aims to convey useful information. Detailing the length of every single runout at Booroomba and explaining every piece of gear would obviously be unnecessary, but I don't think anyone is advocating for that. Is there really anything wrong with pointing out that, while most lines are at least a little runout, there are a handful that are very well protected (provided that you have a #5 for Hermes)?
