No one on this forum can do over 50 chin ups, you're estimations are just a teensy bit ridiculous

Don't know about 5.14 climbers, but I know someone who could redpoint 13b and on-sight 12d and could barely do 2 pull-ups, so your poll is kinda pointless.

I am *FAR* more impressed by this than by anybody's astronomical pull-up count. In general, the fewer pull-ups a 5.14 climber can do, the more impressed with that person I'll be.

I'd be impressed too if I could believe it was true. Do you have a video of this person climbing ?

Well there is a guy who I climb with at the gym and he can do 70 pull ups in a single set.

Then again he doesn't climb anywhere near a .14 (he tops out at a mid .10).

Well i'm sure they could do a lot in my opinion.

For example: I my younger years, i could do on average 90-100 in the gym. Then I did other things and got soft. I know you all probably don't beleve me.

But i wish i could get back to that level. Now I can do only 15, and I climb a 5.11. If i could get there I could probably climb a 5.14. It would realy help me on those long routes.

So 100+ is my guess.

I dont think # of pull ups really has anything to do with grade you climb. Theres so much more that factors in. But I would assume, based on the level of training required to climb that hard, somewhere in the 25-50 range would make sense. Any more would indicate pull up-specific training.

Part in point.

it realy does not matter how many you can do.

I said that, could not do many but It would help me. Well if I was a little stronger, thats all.

I think technique has much more to do with it, that is why i climb at the level I do.. For not even climbing for one year yet. Tongue

This I don't believe for one second.

There is no way someone will climb 5.12 and not be able to at least do 10 pullups.

Are you going to try for ten and let us know the results.

I'm sure there is a tree, or door frame or such in your direct line of site that you could quickly find out with.

I'm not a 5.14 climber, but I have done a few 13d's and I can typically do ~15 pullups, but I train pullups so that will colour the result. My climbing partner climbed 5.14 last year and he struggles to do 10 pullups, he can however do a 1arm pullup, I can't.
Ondra (5.15+) said in a recent interview he can do 28, but can't do a 1armer.
Patxi (5.15+) can do 30 and 1 x 1armer.
Macleoud (5.15) can do 24 and has in the past done 5 x 1armers.
So it's pretty conclusive: a 5.14 climber can do some pullups.
