If you've been searching for the best source of information and stimulating discussion related to Spring/Summer/Fall backpacking, hiking and camping in the Sierra Nevada...look no further!
I'm not convinced that guidebook publication makes 'everyone' think the proposed route is the 'best' - to me it is sometimes the most pragmatic route in areas I don't know that well. The luxury of having the time to cast around for alternatives (especially when rather tired) is limited on my trips....sadly. As you mentioned on the WRHR comment 'publication' does not necessarily mean that routes are 'better' than others, just better promoted - I am pretty sure that new stuff and alternatives can often be found, especially somewhere as complex as the Sierra.
