don't you think that the word confidence is too subjective?

I think that the word "subjective" is too subjective.

And "think" is pretty damned subjective when you think about it....

Mares eat oats, and does eat oats, and little lambs eat ivy....

a kid will eat ivy too

I'll eat Ivy if she's hot.

"Climbing well" , maybe just climbing is, in itself, subjective. 
Confidence is of course subjective measure, gained through training (trad, sport, boulder, gym, etc), repetition, and experience gained through days on rock.

Or a measure of what I can do versus what I can not do....and the chalenge is to climb when I think that I can do, a little gasp between what I did and what I dream to do

pushing our limits, myself against myself.

no competition

Maybe we don't se the same definition of compete: 1.Strive to gain or win something by defeating or establishing superiority over others who are trying to do the same. 2.Take part in a contest

When I write on this forum, I wrote to help people to be safer. I surely don't want to defeat or establish superiority over other. I want them to have fun, climb what ever they like from the lower level to the higher and come back safe. There is so many way to be safe and have fun.

if you write to establish your superiority, you win. I am weaker. I don't take part at your contest.

I use the definition of improve, "1.Make or become better. 2.Develop or increase in mental capacity by education or experience, to describe a competition between me yesterday and me tomorow...
