Creek's right, you've got to go out there and take those falls. I fell on my first lead, and I've fallen on damn near half the routes I've led since then. The key is to keep jugging up to your last clip and going at it again; repetitive falls from the same spot are great for allaying fears. Not to mention that if you're like me, you've got a greater fear of leaving behind expensive gear when you bail than you have of taking a few whippers in order to reach the shuts!
