I have always taken it to mean fast and light, as opposed to siege tactics. To say, leaving out normally essential items to be able to complete a route or peak climb in speedy ascents, as opposed to bringing along everything including the campstove (said here figuratively) for safety and comfort.
Then, that's my gist of the literature referring mainly to the Sierra and a Yosemite big wall, say.
