I think you think I'm arguing things that I am not.
Obviously Ondra is above average height for this subset. In my posts I am saying that height is just a small part of it all, and is not any sort of deciding factor for anyone as an individual. Obviously one disadvantage doesn't mean you can't excel at something.
We are speaking the the context of hard face climbing, and it would seem preposterous to say that everything equals out in the end, or that a climber's build doesn't matter. (" It all comes out in the wash") When it does come out in the wash the top 100 8a average is 5'6.
As for the "new climbers" thing I'm not sure what you are talking about, it was just an imperfect example and you seem to have made it into something else I wasn't intending.
