The problem I see with that response is that "all that time" isn't really that much time at all. Rippetoe's Starting Strength is a pretty good general strength training program for the novice trainee and it takes about 1 hour, three days a week. Pavel's Power to the People is another good one and takes 20 minutes, five times a week. That little time isn't really cutting into climbing time all that much, if at all.

The video I posted was just to show that being strong doesn't necessitate being massive. I'm not saying a person needs to deadlift 4x bodyweight before it benefits climbing.

Athletes in other sports that require a high degree of skill still manage to train with weights.
