I agree  that theses feats of strength are impressive, but how does that relate to their actually climbing ability.  Adam Ondra is probably not able to crank out 10 one arms, but I can guarantee he climbs harder than people who can.  I can barely lock-off and I climb V12.  I'd like to see where they all even out.

You've entirely missed the point of this thread. Good work.

I climb V9 (occasionally) and can lock off. Does this mean I have a bigger dick or a smaller dick than Eric Mortimer?

You've entirely missed the point of this thread. Good work.

This thread derailed about 5 posts ago, as well as it was mentioned earlier that people only value hard sends as a "feat of strength".  My point was to try to draw a parallel with what people train to how that effects their climbing.  I have been wondering about this topic for a long time so this thread seemed appropriate.

Damn you brits are brutal

I just meant to ask what people think, not to sound like a prick.  I have friends that can do 10+ 1-arm pull-ups but he boulders at about the V10 range, versus people like Ondra.

A lot of these feats are old school and I wonder if climbers like hukkataival or Schubert or McColl aren't training like this, or if this just isn't a thing people think is impressive anymore.

I can't lock off, but I am having the most fun.

Where does this put me in the dick rankings?

A big dick obviously, with drive and clarity of vision.

How come that there are no pictures of Malc on Hubble, his photo shoot day on it has been mentioned here as a decent one...
Still I can't find anything on the net...

The Heinz Zak photos were published in OTE. Someone must have a copy they can scan?

You read my mind! This thread should double-up as a database of scanned OTE photos.
