Completely agree. The neuroscience article couldn't really say whether the lack of activity was due to disfunction or just very good control developed over years of practice or a combination of the two. Are they looking at a cause or an effect? Doesn't really matter, he's worked on that control for years and deserves the credit for it.
Apart from that he obviously has a pretty solid capacity for logical thought and that would also be constantly reminding him that one slip was one too many. So he has worked on his physical control to such a degree that he can climb a hugely difficult climb like that without one slip or rest on a rope. Even ignoring the fear factor, that alone is an amazing athletic feat.
