Description: This study utilizes the theoretical framework of self-efficacy to explore the role it plays in rock climbing. Data were gathered from on-site self-administered surveys to rock-climbers in three different locations (N=72). A conceptual model was developed to consider the relationship between selfefficacy and frequency of rock climbing. The initial factor of self-efficacy did not hold, thus allowing us to reconceptualize the nature of the self-efficacy variables in relation to frequency of rock climbing. A discussion of how the results from this study support viewing self-efficacy as a stepwise process and how viewing self-efficacy in this manner can be useful to practitioners for programmatic purposes follows.
