Thanks for the advice. I checked out the Metolius pack and think that might be more up my alley since it is smaller. I have a 30-45 minute approach to the walls I intend to climb at in western NC so I would like to have something I can carry on my back versus the rope bucket design. I also prefer to free climb the lead pitches on top rope versus jumaring. My only concern is how well the rope will feed out of the bag while on lead.
