My biggest problem in climbing is trusting my hands/feet.
My biggest challenge in climbing is continuous climbing.
My biggest opportunity in climbing is overcoming the desire to quit before I send or fall.

Not sure if I I'm coming at this from the right angle.

You might not be. I think the idea of the exercise is to maintain the same concept, but reformulate it in terms of it being a problem, a challenge, and an opportunity. Say your problem is poor footwork, then your answers might be as follows:

My biggest problem in climbing is poor footwork.
My biggest challenge in climbing is to improve my footwork.
My biggest opportunity to improve my climbing will be spending the first hour of each climbing session working on footwork exercises.

When you view something as a problem, you do not empower yourself in any way to improve. When you view the same thing as a challenge, you are taking a step in the right direction because you are at least engaging it in a general way. When you view the same thing as an opportunity, you have identified a specific path of action that will lead you toward your goal.

How about trying the exercise again.
