Don't do the climb, if you Can't do the time

Don't go to bed, with no price on your head

No, no, don't do it.

Don't do the crime, if you can't do the time

Yeah, don't do it.

And keep your eye on the sparrow.

When the going gets narrow.

Don't do it, don't do it.

Where can I go where the cold winds don't blow,

Now. Well, well, well.
Climbing is an unique sport in the sense that you can't take a break from it and then get right back into it.
To do the climb, you need to put in the time. In other words, to be good and more importantly, to be safe, you need to climb lots.
You need to be out there at least 2 - 3 days per week.
You see, climbing is really just a head game.
Sure, you need the muscles. But what you really need is confidence. And confidence only comes by spending time on the rocks. There is really no other way to get it.
With a strong head, you can get up just about anything.
So if climbing is your bag of tricks, invest your time on the rocks and you'll be a better climber without a doubt.

I guess it applies just as much to riding your bike up mountain passes. Funny, but that's what I thought you were writing about until I remembered that you are a rock climber, too.

Thanks for the motivational words. Very timely.
