Link up/ alternate route designation

Hey MP,

So recently Ive been scouting climbs for a trip im making out west.  the issue im having is im coming across some climbs that look awesome or interesting only to find out its only accessible via another climb.  so then I run into realizing the route is longer than id initially figured (adding in the route I have to climb to get to that route) or the route I have to climb to get to my desired route is harder than im looking to do or it may be a trad line into a sport line or something like that.  

my suggestion was to mark the route somehow so that when youre just skimming the top climbs in an area you can easily see that its a link up climb or an alternate finish.  like maybe "Climb #1" (LU) link up or "Climb #1" (AF) Alternate Finish.

has anyone else run into this or am I just complaining about nothing?

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
