Occasionally I'll go to The Spot or BRC or Movement, but only if coerced.
I have flailed on many climbs. It seems like my (comfortable) gear limit hovers around 5.8, no matter where I am or what I'm climbing. I have climbed quite a bit harder on gear, but only when off route and bailing wasn't a good option or when about to be weather off something and speed demanded a "direct" line. :)

I'm new to climbing, and want to climb more!
We were new climbers, and the range of abilities were great. All of the folks were very good climbers, but were super chill. They all took the time to work with the new folks (myself included in the "newbie" list), and teach us everything from some simple gear placement techniques to offering beta when we needed it.
