The Black Diamond PosiWire is a great pick for vertical and/or moderate sport climbs. The bottom carabiner is great for clipping but the unprotected notch can snag when unclipping your rope on steeper terrain. They're also a great choice if you don't want to spend your entire climbing gear budget on one set of draws. If you buy these draws though, just make sure you put some colored tape on them so you know which ones are yours at the crag, as you'll likely see lots of them around.
