this is an attempt to do it thumbless, definitely more wrist than grip

tried these today, my left felt stronger than my right  

Given his weight (90k+) Timo's performance is in a class of its own. One of the most impressive athletes I have seen.

I also tried one finger pullup for the first time and max one arm pullups on eagle loops

A friend of mine was telling me today of another pro climber/ ninja warrior athlete that did at least two reps when Geoff Britten took the rolling thunder at a ninja gym. Forgot his name. So it seems that Peter Mortensen was right

I think the same goes for pinch grip strength. The only thing that pro climbers might not be good at is crushing grip as that requires more specialized training with closing grippers.
