As far as i can comprehend from those links the guy is clearly pointing out that climbers (being in the middle of pure power and pure endurance) would be silly to not include both aerobic and anaerobic training.

i'd say it depends on the climber.

if you're a grade-obsessed weekend warrior with 2 nights a week to train, your goal is to send hard "right now" and you get to the crag/boulder field only to have a few good burns on something hard enough to feel proud about it, aerobic is a waste of time...

(To do effective aerobic work this climber should trade one of his precious "performance days" at the crag for some boring "volume days"-horror!!!)

(btw, in the scenes i've known better, you have a crag/venue for each season and a quite competitive vibe at the mid/hard levels.
Having one predictable monthly/weekly hardish send is the most ego-valuable option, so those who are interested in training often stick to the above profile.
The common knowledge among those climbers is that what "works" best are short, sharp, intense sessions of strenght/bouldering or endurance. It makes perfect sense because this training gives them what they really want:being "performance-ready" almost all the time)
