More information:
I've been climbing for awhile now, and I supposed I've climbed a lot of stuff. I think I've reached the point where I'm considered one of the "old" guys, in that everyone I see at the gym or crag seems to be getting younger than me. I like to look at pretty pictures and discuss training, which is necessary to climb hard at my age.

Black and Tan 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c
  Oct 28 - Onsight! Did a crazy sequence without the Arete. Really committed to some bad feet, but had the belief and the 'go for it'. Very psyched to complete the goal of OSing CCC's two slab test pieces. I think it's harder than Double Sout, at least the way I did
Defenseless Betty 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a
  Oct 10 - fairly polished, nearly as hard as Hang 'em.
Bottom Feeder 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c
  Oct 10 - great warmup.
Irie Meditation 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a
  Oct 10 - great warmup. crimpy.
