Overall it is a good pack for the crag. I like the other version that BD seemed to have discontinued better, it has a brain for storing your lunch and small non-climbing items, and then the full belly for the rope and your gear. It also was better designed for longer approaches. This version has a nice internal pocket though, and a larger internal volume to make up for it. The pack is comfortable for some of the local areas around me, but for anything scramble-y or long, I didn't like it as it was uncomfortable, the waist belt needed some beefing up.
