As a general rule, athletics is made up of 20% training and 80% nutrition, and climbing is no exception.

Completely disagree. Good eating, crappy training, you won't get strong. Crappy eating, good training, you'll still get strong.

I'd have to agree with skelldify--for me, training has always had much bigger improvement then healthier eating. The other factor that was huge for me when I was running twice a day for XC was how much sleep I got. It's crucial when you're training hard.
For me it's 50/50, but I am naturally a fatty (I freaking LOVE eating, have a huge appitite, and I put on weight very easily) so I could train hard as all hell but if I didn't control my diet I'd get really fat.

I actually got quite fat while living in moab and climbing every day because I was like "I can't get fat! I'm climbing all day every day!" and ate whatever I felt like.

Edit: Fat enough to make me worse at climbing despite how much milage I was getting in.
