At my peak I probably could have pulled off 40 straight (never actually did this, though I would do sets of 30 pretty regularly). I can not however do this today, though I am heading back in that direction. I have no doubt our 1 arm rope climber guy could do this now. Many elite gymnasts, if not most, can also do this.

To get to this point you really just need to do a ton of pulling stuff. Gymnasts do a lot of pull ups, but also in the course of our workout we are constantly lifting ourselves in a huge variety of ways, this all contributes to the pulling strength.
