What's the point of being strong if you can't move properly using good technique? From a bouldering angle you might still solve the boulder prolem. But on long routes you'll waste energy by moving unefficienty.
What's the point of having technique if you don't have the power to do the required moved moves? You also most likely won't be able to complete a route in this case.
Strength and technique are both essential and of equal importance in my opinion.
