Well, I'm on my way to reaching my goal. One of my climbing partners read my wellsphere goal and decided to help me get there. In the past I hadn't climbed higher than 5.10D, and generally climbed 5.10B or 5.10C. On Wednesday Catherine and Erin convinced me to try a 5.11B (since I'd been pushing them to climb harder routes) and sure enough, knowing that there were there to support me (or, more realistically, there to heckle me) I managed to clean a 5.11B! They key for me was concentrating on keeping my weight on my feet rather than on my arms & hands. That way my arms didn't lose their strength before to top of the route.
