Fear itself does not impair logical thought. Panic impairs logical thought. Fear places emphasis on survival rather than other goals without it focus on other goals may distract somebody from what matters.

Fear keeps us alive out there.

But there is a couple different kinds of fear. An irrational fear can cause panic and has no place in climbing and I believe is more akin to what jay was speaking of. A healthy fear (rational) is indeed needed and should be acknowledged frequently to help keep us alive.
