More information:
I mainly stick to trad, rarely sport, never ice, alpine, or bouldering. My home crag is Eldo, where I'm confident leading most 10b (but only have a "reasonable" chance of making a 10c clean while following). Occasionally, I head out to the Creek (leading 10+), Vedauwoo (5.2!), or Lumpy (5.9). Weather permitting, I prefer full days (my best day in 2014 was leading 10 pitches of 5.10 in Eldo). I don't mind repeating routes, but I never "siege". I'm a bit slow when on-siting.

Regarding safety, I tend to be a bit obnoxious, but you will likely not notice this while climbing with me. So, here's my take on safety:
Never put your life on a single piece of gear. This means a single-sling 'sliding-X' setup is a no-no as an anchor.
There are at least two pieces of gear between me and a bad landing when I lead hard cruxes. Yeap, I place a bit more gear than most and I'm not embarrassed about it at all.
If you think you have a hands-free belay device, please bring the manufacturer's manual to prove it.
I do not eat, drink, take pictures, play with a phone, or anything else while belaying you. And I require the same of you. No matter what kind of fancy belay device you have.
I'm very conservative while leading. Taking two lead falls in a season is a "big" season for me.
