I find this phenomenon fascinating. Over the years I've found my "envelope" between "99% certain I can onsight it" and "impossible" to have shrunk virtually to nothing (to within 2 or 3 grades). Disclaimer: I find redpointing mind numbingly boring, so don't bother with that style of ascent much.

In contrast when I was a bumbly I found everything desperate and scary and had about the same chance of success on a 12 as on a 22, which tells me it's got to be at least partly psychological.

Has anyone else noticed this and wondered what it's all about?

[postscript: the fact that I spend more time thinking about this kind of thing than actually climbing probably speaks volumes too...]
