If you trained pure strength your numbers will go up faster. Wayyy faster.
Thats what I have found. In order for numbers to go up quickly, you must focus on one thing at a time which is why pr's are difficult to achieve on a metcon/strength program. It's still difficult though especially when other factors such as diet, sleep, life get into the mix.

I cant imagine being a rock climber at my height though, the light weight would be an advantage but the shorter limbs I would think to be a disadvantage.

I still think it takes years of training (or several months of very strict training) to really reach any potential.
