I've used them for everything from alpine climbs and frozen waterfalls in the Sierra, trekking in Nepal, even lugging heavy loads to and from the base of El Cap. Last summer I used it for a light 5 day trip over Shepherd's Pass, and it was great for that too.
The only caveat is that the last one I bought was a good 15 yrs. ago, maybe even a little longer, and it's my understanding the company's focus has changed a little. If you buy a Wild Things, I think the Andanista is probably too big for what you're looking for. My pack is 4000 c.i. (before liters became the norm-slightly larger than 60 L, which is about 3700 c.i) and it feels big for just a day trip, so the Andanista will likely feel even more so. That is a good size though for 2-3 day trips since it forces you to trim down your load.
Edit: also look at Cold Cold World. Good technical climbing packs.

How did you get your Vaude pack in the states? I contacted Vaude a couple months ago about another pack and was told that it was unavailable in the US.
Also, how is the torso length? It seems like the pack I was looking at was one size fits all. Is that the same as yours?
