/ Competition stress to much
Read Jerry Moffatts Book!
Don't be afraid of over warming up. Climb something steep and juggy. Climb really fast and even carelessly. Get all your nervous energy out. Then you can calm down a bit for the comp route/boulder
That means making sure you've packed everything the day before, with good food and energy drinks, money if you want to but anything. You've got your favourite boots on, your chalk bag is full, your wearing your lucky top etc.
Then on the day get really well warmed up, familiarise yourself with your routes, make sure everything will go smoothly, and that way you can't have any doubts.
Lastly, just remind yourself that, at the end of the day, it really doesn't matter how you do, so long as you're enjoying your climbing.
Get a good book on CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), or if you are serious, go to a cousellor who practices CBT. It's good for resolving phobic types of fear.
