They should be used as a reference "Guide" only.
They are NOT a/the bible.
They are solely opinions of the author.
In many cases, the author climbed less that 25% of the routes within the covers. They have little actual first hand knowledge of the routes.
That is a farse and the reason I say that GB's are to be used as a ref only.
Pretty broad brush, Chief. Depends on the book, seems.
