Engaging in occasional practice falling is an essential part of becoming an effective fear-manager.
Taking practice falls is best done in the controlled setting of a climbing gym, although you can also do it at a sport crag.
The long-term effect of taking practice falls is that you will be able to detach from the fear of falling in safe situations and climb free with little or no fear load.
