I fell just before clipping a bolt about 18 meters up on a 5.11b/c (VIII- UIAA, 6c+ French), where it was a complete surprise. The move isn't the crux, but it's very pumpy after a lot of small holds. The fall position was relatively far to the left of the bolt line too, moves beginning with a commiting leftward traverse under a roof. You don't get to clip again until 3 moves above the roof, yikes! Really the ideal situation to fall in. In the past, I would have rested on the rope, grabbed off-route holds, or otherwise figured out some way to avoid the big drop.

You can't become a better climber if you are more affraid of falling than you have the need to finish the climb!
