Climbing Techniques - Come Forward for Success

In mountaineering, as in every other area of human activity, you will only reach its full potential if they embrace the concept of failure. Sounds paradoxical, I know, but too many climbers in their comfort zone where you can not stay ... and not much better.
The climb was the old adage: "The leader never falls". And with terrible climbing protection, said that in a good way. Even today, in certain situations, you can still make good sense. There are X-rated rooms in the United States and exposed climb, where a fall would be fatal. No way to succeed in this little beauty, for sure!
But most of the climbing is on a large scale from 0 (most secure is not always) to 10 (terminal). If the limits of your study or your experience of climbing slide, then you can look at locations close to 0 on the serious scale. That is, if you deliberately try to do more serious way, in this case I recommend to be cautious - in fact, very careful.
But suppose you onsighted F6as 20 (5.10B) with success - is not on them. It is clear that the consolidated position (if your current experience). To state the obvious difficult, more difficult routes that you have to go climbing. But it is your choice whether you stay in your comfort zone or stop. Either way is fine as long as you want.
If your comfort zone, then three months later, he had climbed another 15 F6as, bringing the total number to 35 Or maybe you have to be done for five more - all successful - and I tried 10 different routes, which are much more. If you've done this, would your scorecard as follows: 25 F6A success. Four successful F6A + and a failure. F6bs three successful and two defeats. Now you can build a pyramid and press continue to use. Sure there are a few mistakes, but as long as the routes were relatively safe to fall, who cares? (Note: All routes are potentially dangerous. Make sure a competent court must warn you all the time. If you want a helmet, a bear.)
Can you see what's going on? Instead of not avoid like the plague, you accept it as a learning tool. As long as your "average" go up then it is relatively safe, which cares about the occasional failure?
Top climbers are not afraid of the (safe) failure. They know that the profit to remain at 100% of the time, in your comfort zone. The trick is not 'Next' to success. By the way, this tactic also works well in life! Make sure you can not, where the penalties are relatively mild. But the fear of failure (not the error itself) is the biggest thing stopping most people realize their full potential. There is an old movie called climbing, "Break on Through" and that is what we should all do. Break on Through to the other - not only in climbing but in life!
Michael (Mick) Ward has climbed since 1967. 56 years, is still around 5.12 or F7B +. He made many first ascents and mountaineering written for many magazines. He has to improve.
