If that is your normal chest routine, then that explains why you've never made good gains. You need to do some type of compound movement, e.g., bench press. Incline press puts less stress on your rotator cuff. Any type of press will also work your triceps.

Of course, none of this has much of anything to do with climbing.

1) Incline bench press is a compound.... lol

2) I said I would do both flat and incline

3) That is a stereotypical classic body building chest workout with some things missing

4) Incline bench are one of the best exercises for upper chest

5) Yes, my triceps will get worked through bench. So what?

6) Yes, this has nothing to do with climbing. Other than the fact that I want to workout specific areas that aren't worked in climbing to EVEN MY BODY out

7) Flat bench is nowhere near the best exercise for chest. It is more of a full upper body lift. Pushups, flys etc are better for chest
