All to true M8, climbing is all about trust (trust your gear, trust your feet, etc) not being able to trust your partner denegrates the experience for all.

“It is unusual to entrust our wellbeing to others, yet in climbing this happens quite often, especially when climbing a climb at the limit of your ability, when a fall is almost expected. Friendships formed through such trust and shared experiences aren’t influenced by social status, nationality, gender or other preference. Friendships develop because each partner is willing to give and support, not blindly but with judgement.” (Martin, 1995)

Just a short quote borrowed from Peter Martin, I think it highlights the imporatance of trust in a climbing relationship. The quote apeared in a paper I prepared titiled "The Value of the Climbing Experience"
