Ways Of Thinking That Distracts Our Attention To Scale A Hard Road

Last year I visited Puerto Rico to climb and take courses. My friends took me to Puerto Ricans Cayey, a place of basalt, climbing for a day of rock climbing.
They showed me a traditional route called “Head to Toe” (from head to foot) and said that she was the graduation of VIsup br. Well, that was what I thought they’d said.
The route followed a wormhole and ended with a climb in the face. So, I set up my gear and started.
Via had several places of rest where I could put protections and get the next session. I identified the projections to be able to use to grab and I made a plan in pillows. The climb was difficult, but I was able to climb by each section to get the next break.
Finally, I came to the anchor and I went down to the floor. My friends were happy for me, saying “you spotted a VIIc br”.
A common problem in mental training is becoming a more difficult mentally than she is we left the level of via to determine how hard the climb will be for us. We think it’s going to be tough when we climbed way above our limit. Or, we think it will be easier when we climbed way below our limit.
Any of these ways of thinking distracts our attention to climb the route itself. We’re scaling an image in the mind instead of the stone in front of us. Doing this creates expectations of difficulty or ease, that interferes with our climbing.
We can see the benefit of thinking that we’re climbing a grade easier, as in my experience in ‘ Head to toe ‘. We deceive us – or someone fool us-to have a more relaxed mindset while climbing. Think I was climbing a VI sup my mind relaxed and allowed me to focus better.
Tricks like these, however, bypass the stress to get short-term purposes. There is benefit to face the stress of knowing the real degree we’re climbing. Be attentive to such mental tricks and redirect the attention back to the current situation to see her as clearly as possible.
Conversely, we can see the limitations of thinking that we’re climbing a grade harder. We make the climb more difficult than it really is. Fear graduation instead of focusing on real parts, such as the type of grab, falls and protections.
We need clarity and objectivity. We see beyond the mental image that is in the mind-be it of difficulty or ease-so we can see the various parts of the road. We describe these parts objectively not to make the climb “more or less” than she really is.
We describe the points of protection, the consequences of falls and climbing possibilities of objective way. After we remain curious to use that via offers us to climb. Doing this helps us remain goals and see more clearly.
The tricks and tactics skirt the mental stress. The mental training mira these tricks and delete them. The stress must be faced directly so we can learn. Face the stress and work through it builds a solid foundation to commit ourselves to new learning situations and more stressful.
Don’t make the easy way or the hard way than she really is, see the route as it is and then between the stress with total awareness.
Practice tip: Focus on the possibilities
If you do not know the degree of difficulty of a route, so you are forced to focus on the possibilities to climb it. Your attention will not be on how hard or easy the climbing will be; She will be in actions that must be taken for the climb.
Go for a climbing area that has unknown routes to you. Don’t take a guide or sketch. Search for paths that seem interesting and choose some taking into account the consequences of the fall in time of difficulty.
Make sure that you have experience with such consequences.
So, focus on the possibilities while you climb the routes. You can later view the Guide to get the degree of difficulty.
You can be amazed at what you can climb focusing on possibilities rather than in degree.
