It's actually not just about BF% . That doesn't matter as much as your pure strength to weight ratio.

Last year i lifted a lot, had a very low bf%.

I got sick for a month, and lost 3kg because I couldn't exercise much. i lost quite a bit of muscle and put on some fat, but i ended up climbed BETTER becausei was significantly lighter

Obviously it's better to be light AND fit, but what im saying is that spraying about your bf% when climbing is barking up the wrong tree. You may be "fit" but for climbing a "fat" light dude is fitter than a muscular heavy dude.

The one benefit i see of starting from a big frame like it sounds like you have is that if you can get your weight down healthily, your tendons and muscles are going to be extremely strong for your new weight.
