General Climbing Discussion

pull ups 11-Dec-2006 At 12:51:21 PM Nottobetaken
An amusing discussion on this topic features in a recent Climb (UK magazine) - only they were questioning the relevance of one-arm pull ups versus climbing performance. They used the one-armer as their measure of maximum strength. Some of the UKs top climbers were interviewed, with results ranging from a V14 boulderer who couldn't do one at all, to someone that had climbed at a max level of 32, and could do 4.

The classic comment was this though: "At my fittest, I could do 4 one-armers (in a row), but at the time I was sharing a house with Malcolm Smith - and he could do 12 - so I always considered myself to be the house weakling." - Neil Gresham.
