I find Fazc's comment interesting. I've only started deadlifting any serious weights in the last month, as I've been training my wife in powerlifting. When I got up into what were for me heavy weights, I had no grip issues whatsoever even though I was using sumo style with no gnurling on the bar and no chaulk, whereas my wife kept losing her grip over and over. Even though I haven't been dead lifting, I've trained my back much more than the average guy, including plenty of heavy rows and pull/chinups, so upper back strength for me is definitely a non-issue.
