i love these shoes, climbed mostly in 5,10 moccs before, and i love how much more asymetrical and downturned these are. the arch is what makes the shoe, and the heel cup fits me much better than anasazi heels. I use them mainly for steep sport climbing in the RRG

if you need pack to swollow anything, carry it an obscene distance and look great after years of abuse, and not the cute kind either, than this is the pack for you. not for ultralighters though

just got it w/new rope for birthday. works well for bouncing round a crag, the baggie on is nice for small stuff. much better for leading than toproping b/c the bucket feeds out rope nicely, but puting it in while belaying takes practice. has a daisy chain on the inside, but one on the outside would be nice as well, as well as an exterior pocket, but i can put every thing for a day of sport climbing in it nicely. Also, used it for two days at rocktown to haul all the extra crap i take bouldering and it worked better than a pack, and far easier than cramming stuff in the pad. All in all cheaper than most rope bags, and far more versitile IMO

amazing price on great biners. if they were near normal priced they'd be a 4, but less than $5 for this, that's a 5 in my book, seriously, you know they are good when the rating is roughly equivilent to the price (4.66=$4.75)!

swell biners for the price. nice action and for a light biner their not tiny, smaller, but not tiny. i only have used them on the ends of cams though, might be a little small for sport
