To climb your very best -- and to truly enjoy climbing -- you need to become an expert fear manager!

Nothing is more elemental to climbing than fear. The fears of falling, getting hurt, failure, embarrassment, and even the fear of the unknown...can be torturous and paralyzing. To climb efficiently and with confidence, you need to be able to assess and manage fear...which is the subject of this podcast.

If you haven't already, do listen to Part 1 on Fear -- Episode #62 -- before commencing with this concluding episode on the topic. Enjoy!

6:10 - 3 strategies to eliminate the fear of failure.

6:20 - 1.) Acknowledge preparedness and training -- it's like money in the bank!

7:50 - 2.) Focus on the process -- stay in the moment.

10:00 - It's in climbing for yourself -- win, lose, or hanging from a quickdraw -- that you will climb your best!

11:38 - FEAR #4: Fear of Embarrassment and Criticism
