Topic - Technique vs Physical Conditioning

needvert on 12 May 2012
Recovering from an injury, I've lost a whole lot of hand and arm strength. I've been wondering just how far good technique can get you when you've only got average muscles to do it.

Keep in mind I mean average as in the whole population, not peoples bubble of climbing friends. (I suspect if everyone in the UK were to do a pullup rep count test the median would be zero.)

So how have people found their grades dropped when they stopped climbing for a year or few? Or as they put on weight?

Conversely what kind of grades do well physically conditioned people managed to make it up without prior exposure to climbing (and consequently no chance to develop technique)?
