26. Tower Ascent

In the story of Rapunzel, the namesake character is rescued by a brave prince who climbs Rapunzel's long hair as a rope with which to ascend the tower in which she's imprisoned.  In order to even get to the point where Rapunzel and the Prince can hatch an escape plan, he must have first determined that's truly what he wanted to do-- and that his grip is steady before climbing.  TOWER ASCENT shows up when complete commitment is required for a task or new role to be completed well.
