So today I was joking with a friend and solo'd some 40' easy peasy route... and I get to the top and then climb down and this middle-aged man comes over and says, "I don't mean to be an asshole, but don't do that again while I'm here"

... please tell me you are trolling. If not, how old are you exactly? I've never been to a gym that would be even remotely okay with someone free soloing above shoulder height. Even if you think you know what you are doing, you have no idea what shape the holds are in and whether there could be spinners or not. And it's not just your own life you're putting at risk. What if you were to fall and land on someone?

Even if this "middle-aged man" didn't work at the gym, he probably still has a vested interest in not seeing it get shut down when a kid like you goes and does something stupid and then your parents somehow find a way to pin responsibility on the gym.
