While pull-ups are great for upper body strength development and have many other functional applications, if we ever found ourselves in a situation where we had to pull our bodyweight up to safety, it would be highly unlikely that we would have a smooth and symmetrical steel surface for us to get our hands on. The more unstable climbing rope provides a more realistic training stimulus for emergency situations and requires a different type of grip strength and coordination than the traditional pull-up.
