Climber Gear Review no rating given just a review

“I used these for 16 pitches in a day at Castle Rock [granite face and trad] and some sport,” said our tester. “They held edges well on 5.11+ face, jammed great on Country Club Crack, and worked well on mixed terrain.” The General has become a favorite for all but gym climbing, and he praised the chiseled toe in both hand and finger cracks. For a high-top trad shoe, they are remarkably precise.
