I have some gently used climbing rope in great condition.  I climb once or twice a year in the 5.6 to 5.8 range and have never taken a leader fall on these ropes.The lengths vary from 50 to 60 meters. The rope on the far left is only 93 feet.  I cut the rest off to use on a climbing wall.
50m = $50 + $19 for 2-3 day priority shipping
60m =$60 +$19 2-3 priority shipping
The short rope is $30 ($14 priority shipping)
I'm in Houston TX

What's the diameter of the 50m and 60m? How old are they?

I'm not sure of the exact diameter, but I would guess between 10.2mm and 10.8mm.  The ropes range in age from about 6 or 7 years to 8 or 9, but I don't know which is which.  I rarely climb, never fall leading, and the rope and sheath are in very good condition.  No real wear.

HA they should all be retired from climbing on at this point with that lifespan

Debatable, ropes aren't normal soft goods. Check out the bd lab on old ropes.Youd think bd would tell you to buy a new rope every month but they actually found that 20 year old rope was just as good a brand new rope.

Definitely incorrect information.  Most rope companies recommend a 10 year rope lifespan with a 5 year shelf life, for a total of 15 years, and you can bet that they are being extremely conservative.  Test data shows that as long as they are stored properly and not used there really is no lifespan.

I bought a rope from pintles.  It was one of his new ones that a friend of his had cut for dog leash project.  Anyway, these are different but I wanted to say that pintles is a straight dude and the rope I got is awesome and he shipped way fast.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
