Along the road or in this instance mountain there can be many obstacles like the rock being slippery, going the wrong way, or grabbing a hand hold that doesn't stay together. This is exactly like writing a paper you get caught up on many obstacles like writing something that doesn't go together, not knowing how to continue where you ended off last, and going off onto a different topic.
