aside from climbing specific training (targeting specific muscle groups with specific exercises, campus work, core work, and the like), I found that hitting the road bike made a huge difference. Jumped 2 grades in a pretty short time. Food for thought.

As far as crossfit goes, I have a buddy that runs a gym and he got me to train with him a little bit. Aside from wanting to barf, I felt like it actually had a negative effect on my climbing because I was beat from the crossfit workouts and couldn't rally enough stamina/endurance to work projects. I could see it being effective if you were taking a break from climbing and could focus on crossfit. you would likely come back stronger.
