Another story of a climber dealing with fear.
The two of us decided to back off the climb after I clipped #6, but not before I took a couple practice falls. Its true! Me! Falling! And this time, I let my terrified self express it's feelings. Vocalizing the fall made it just a smidge less scary. And it actually felt kind of good. It didn't take away the fear entirely, but made it a bit more acceptable.
Light bulb #1: Scream more often cause it feels good. Piece of cake.
