Of course, you could also use it as an opportunity to improve your pinch strength.

That's my point! I've recognized pinches as a weakness, and I've been specifically training them. However, as I'm training them, I can't help but think that it's not actually helping my outdoor climbing.

Also, just out of curiosity, what are some routes in the SE that have pinch cruxes on them? I've climbed quite a number of routes up to 5.12 around there, and I can't think of one. Maybe they're found more frequently on harder routes? However, I've had this discussion with a friend who climbs well into the 13's, and he couldn't think of any, either.
