Pull ups vs campusing

The general opinion as far as i can gather on rc is that pull ups have no substantial baring on climbing. However when it comes to campusing that opinion seems to sway the other way for most.

What actual physical difference in gains would their be from doing pull ups on multiple style holds over campusing?. I realise the obvious difference in contact from doubles, but is that not more a motor/coordination based gain rather than physical?. It is not like we climb in such a way.. so anybody new to campusing doubles will have to learn the relatively unique technique it involves. In other words, would explosive pull ups that almost lift you off the hang board not amount to the same concept physically?.

Ladders are also comparable to slow pull ups, their not a world apart, especially if you add weight to the pull up to compensate for the obvious altered arm height in ladders. Apart from again slight motor skill differences they appear to be of the same nature.. but we mostly do actual climbing in a ladder style fashion anyway so that is a skill that should already be well trained?.

Just curious for opinions of those who have done both to compare. And for clarity, i was referring to pull ups done on a hang board.
