Marc801- Wow, I found your post really insulting, sorry. I have just registered here so I expected the welcome to be a bit warmer. If you don't like what I have posted or read them you could have just ignored it.

Please don't go comment here any more if you are annoyed or anything. Just because you are not new in climbing, I assume for too long doesn't mean you can say everything's so easy to a new climber like me.
Where did I ever say it was easy? In fact, quite the opposite. It's difficult, it's physical, it's mental, and it takes a crap-ton of work to get better. All I did was boil down the excellent advice you've been given by others into a few short sentences and yes, a lot of things that you're complaining about really do require the realization that that is part of what climbing is all about, hence the need to face reality and.....get used to certain things that are part of the sport. Climbing is as much a mental puzzle as it is physical - "chess problems in the air" as Pat Ament once wrote - and climbing at the higher levels requires physical conditioning and training not unlike that of an Olympic gymnast.

You keep saying this. Get some books and read - stop using the excuse.
"The Self Coached Climber" is one (and was mentioned earlier - and will answer a lot of the questions you've been asking). "How to Rock Climb" by John Long is another. [ http://www.amazon.com/...Series/dp/B002WTC9VU ]

Some write multiple paragraphs, many others a single sentence or two. Don't equate brevity with rudeness. If you're that easily offended, maybe discussion forums aren't for you. It's not our job to stroke your ego and make you feel better.
