I take exception to the classification of Huge Bitch. There is only one, so back off little people!

Would be interesting to have some stats on the top climbers/boulderers to see what body type is typically best suited to climbing.

Anyone know what Fred Nicole is like, I read recently that he did a pinkie finger one arm pull up!

From what I can make out, it looks like less is more. The skinny, small climbers usually dominate, particularly in sport and bouldering. Obviously there are exceptions. A big build usually suits mountaineering and alpinism better. But I think psyche matters more than anything else. I am way too big for bouldering though, no matter how psyched. I just cant use sit start grips at waist level. But I sure can reach up nice and high to place that psychological piece on a sketchy trad monster!
