Topic - Fear of falling

GGoose - on 09 Mar 2012
Hi everyone,

I've been climbing for about a year at the local climbing wall.

I'm basically after some advice as to how to make me a more confident climber. I'm constantly held back by my lack of faith in equipment and my knots. I did a course that taught me everything I know about climbing and have had someone check my knots etc, but I still get worried. I use a retraced figure of 8 with about 4 or 5 locking knots, I was taught to do this knot with 2 locking knots but feel like 5 is better!

Its strange because I'm not affair of the height I just don't feel safe, its like I'm climbing with no gear.

Anyone else experience this? Any advice to become more confident?

Thanks,
Phil.
