I recently had a class 3 campsite with 600 feet of gain in about a mile, that was some good training, just to get to bed each night...

That said, most of the trad climbers I know will do what it takes to get to good routes or away from the crowds. They just won't enjoy it, and why should they? Trail running is fun, mountain biking is fun, humping a pack full of gear uphill is an annoyance.
