If you think that fear of failure holds you back in your climbing, you might find this article interesting.

Seems fairly similar to Arno's ideas. That said, I will definitely buy the book when it is available. Fear or failure held me back climbing just yesterday. I wanted to red point this route because my girlfriend got it the week before. I cruised right through the crux and then fell on a stupidly easy move. I knew the route was incredibly safe. The fall posed no risk except to my ego. I was only afraid to fall because I was afraid to fail. Please post whenever this book is available for purchase!

nice article but the graph in that article is about the stupidest thing I have ever seen. Hey lets make it look scientific and add a graph :)

MacLeod covered performance anxiety in his book, and did so better than you've captured it, without the useless chart. Look, I'm an engineer, I dig visual/spacial representations and naturally learn more easily in that format, but that thing is just laughable.

And what's with the "New pyschology" bit? Pompous, overwrought, and incorrect. Nothing new about this concept.

Why do I cringe whenever people presume to tell me what I'm thinking when I climb?
