aspect of the transition from hiking to mountain climbing

Non-mountain climber here, but someone who is fascinated by it. I'm considering making the jump from hiking to climbing a mountain, but I think the thing I'm most concerned about are navigation skills. I can tolerate long, brutal, body-crushing hikes, but once a trail becomes hard to follow, I find myself getting uneasy. I imagine this is a fact of life for anyone who climbs a mountain.

How about for you? What was the big hurdle? And I know the obvious answers are things like falling into a bottomless crevasse or being above 8000 meters in the middle of nowhere, but I mean things that straddle the line between a serious hike and actually climbing a mountain.
