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.

Scott 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a
  Mar 2 - Better warmup. Hard move getting to right rail, and committing dyno at B3.
Rebecca 5.13- 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E7 6c
  Mar 1 - OS. Dealt with some wet rock, but managed it fine. Nice send after epic Saturday.
Jerk Off 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c
  Mar 1 - OS. Amazing effort, since totally worked, too little rest btwn burns. Underestimated tough slopey crux at B2, barely scrapped thru it. Made it to B3 rest, recovered enough to nail final dyno crux. Very proud send after epic Saturday.
Cutter 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a
  Mar 1 - OS. A couple sharp holds, but ok as warmup.
