I think the giant cheering section can be a bit lame, but I'm not one of those people who gets annoyed by people giving tons of beta, It might help or I might just ignore it, but I know that really bothers some people.

In the interest of scholarship, a similar poll was submitted before.
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=9711&p=174901&hilit=cheering#p174901
I think the current poll is slimmer and gets to the point.
The results of the previous poll seemed to indicate that an unintelligible din from the flash mob is distracting on average. Perhaps the question that remains is why isn't the climber crowd on the ground more like the spectators at the golf tournament?

There were a few sends that would likely not have happened without the cheering section, but generally, ground talk distracts me, unless it is solicited beta. I think the climber is often as focused as the golfer when driving or putting. In golf, applause is reserved and polite after success.

My climbing level doesn't qualify me for international crowd yelling Allez! and Venga, but I do think that a couple of friends rooting for you, cheering and yelling encouragement CAN make a difference. It does create a certain amount of "energy" and makes you try your hardest.
