Bear..not saying you're wrong...but how much have you climbed outside of Squish? Not every climbing area is vertical/less than vertical cracks. Come out (maybe you already have) and climb at Obed, or the Red, or the New, or just about any place in NC...ie overhangs. These places will require more upper body pull strength. No one will argue that technique and footwork don't come first, but pull/lock-off strength sure can help. BTW, I doubt I can do anywhere near 20 PU's!
