Well said. I used to be a free climber before I beame a DAV, now it's rope and belay only. I always had a fear of heights from as early as I can remember, and facing them was the one sure way to harness if not conquer them. Height is a matter of perspective: I am sure you could walk across a 6 inch wide board if it was 2 feet off the ground. But put that same board 200 feet above a drop and most people would balk. If you were to cross boards at increasingly increased heights, your fears would decrease with each step up. Or if you wer eto stand at the edge of the drop for thirty minutes or so, your eyes and brain would acclimate and thereby decrease the level of fear. It' not wrong to have fear, it's a saftey mechanism, only when the fear inteferes with rational thought or muscle coordination does it become your enemy and not your friend.Fear sure doesn't know any reason. I'm the type that likes to confront and conquer my fears. My method is to gradually acclimate to them. Soon enough that fear is conquered and it's time to move on. There is no fear that's dumb to the person experiencing it. There are a lot of really fun, flat trails out there. Just have fun, no reason to push it if you don't feel like it.
