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.

S Crack 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b
  Mar 22 - Aesthetic splitter that goes through all sizes, but mostly fists and OW. Nice training route. I only had one #4, and no 5, so had to go for it. Wear pants for knee locks.
Unknown Fingers 5.12- 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a
  Mar 21 - Good hard climbing (not too painful), but quite dirty. Very powerful lie backs pulling around roof with feet you can't trust. Sucks up #2 tcus. Another good trainer, gets shade late.
Rednekk Justus 5.10+ 6b+ 21 VII+ 20 E3 5b
  Mar 21 - Aesthetic splitter, but flake to the right allows you to avoid the business. Might be 12 otherwise, so could be good training route. You're always within a body length of a good hand or foot jam.
Passion for Pumping aka Corner Pump Station 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c
  Mar 21 - Typical lieback corner, if that is your thing. Hard on the toes. A hard/scary start and awkward top out.
