It's just a shame the tread depth is minimal and they'll be rubbish on most approaches for that very reason :-(. Why manufacturers can't put the nice vibram mountain commando sole with solid toe edge you find on mountaineering boots on their approach shoes I don't know.
The chunkier the sole the more weight - it's all compromise. The review does mention that they can be slippy on wet grass: http://goo.gl/jBqr6f but James was so bowled over by their climbing capabilities he didn't seem to care!
The new style 5.10 Guide Tennie has had the tread beefed up if you want to take a look: http://goo.gl/KM4nbg and it may also be worth keeping an eye out for the next version of the Camp Four.
Build quality is great, and they are OK for most approaches but not wet grass, they climb well too.
adidas do a version with a rocker and more lugs, the scope
i had a pair of non-stealth terrex solos, the terrex fast and did a few alpine ascents in them. They took brutal abuse for 2 years and lasted well.
