Description (partial)

Multiple description commands are allowed within route-map. Only one description command is allowed for other configurations (interface, policy-map, class-map, vrf defination, etc) that support the description command. In line with the other description command, only one description should be allowed with route-map as well:
router#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
router(config)#route-map test
