comment Is my current strength building workout good to start off with?
I'm not talking about big muscles. I'm talking about strength. You should look into body weight exercises, goblet squats, dumbbell presses, etc.

I read that as "Don't waste time doing arms. Compound exercises...". @Victor Parmar, you may want to edit your answer to make the TIP less ambiguous.

This is one of the major differences between sprinting and marathoning.

comment Combining weight-lifting (starting strength) with rockclimbing?
Yes. Ramp up the deadlifts, and keep it up for as long as you are doing Starting Strength. Just pay attention to your back position, and don't forget to brace before pulling.

Nope. It has nothing to do with the amount of oxygen in your blood (which is affected by breathing). It has everything to do with the metabolic processes to meet the demands you are placing on your body. Heavy exertion means metabolism without oxygen--even if your blood-oxygen levels are saturated.

comment Started weight training, but cannot see progress
The only thing I'd add is that squats and deadlifts help build mass like nothing else. You get the biggest testosterone spike after these workouts, and because they incorporate just about all the muscles in the body, they all get increases. Don't do them to exhaustion though. Use these to help build base strength, and the other exercises to fine tune the shape of muscles, etc.
