Does weight matter in rock climbing?
Yes, weight can matter in rock climbing. A lower body weight can contribute to a better strength-to-weight ratio, making it easier to pull and hold oneself up on the wall. It can also alleviate strain on the fingers and improve grip strength. Lighter climbers may find it easier to perform dynamic movements and have improved endurance. However, weight is just one factor among many, and success in climbing depends on various factors such as technique, skill, strength, and flexibility.
