Is technique-intensive the same as beta-intensive? Or a route that is sequential?

So I'm confused...he mentions technique then references climb types.
Someone tell me, please, what is technique? Mental focus? Muscle control? Specific moves?
Gumby needs help.

In this context, it is the type of movement associated with that character of climb. You don't use the same body positions, movements, techiques on a slab as you do an overhang.

Then, some routes require (or lend themselves) more efficient or deft usage of the appropriate technique. Delicate, sequential, footwork, body positioning, etc. as opposed to requiring brute force, or just a basic ladder-like series of repeated moves.

The kind of climb where you fall and think "I have not idea how to get through that section" or "that's sequency" as opposed to "that move is really powerful" - that sid powerfull moves can be techical, like the opening sequence of Dracula.

Requiring both technique and a good lead head, I think the Gift at Long Wall ranks as one of the better routes I have done.

I agree, The Gift is awesome and requires some technique. Also Bundle of Joy at the Solarium.
