I've also heard about some discrepencies (sp) with DEXA. I think JD's right. Look in the mirror. Do you like what you see? That being said, I do use calipers with my clients, but I don't care about the actual number. I just care that it's going down. The biggest thing with calipers is reliability. For what it's worth, we had to do 300 tests before we graduated with a BS.

PS The cat is awesome.

Hah! My routine is pretty lame, compared to most people on this board. I always do some sort of row, some sort of press, some sort of squat, deadlift, plus miscellaneous shoulder stability and core exercises that I’d like to think help my climbing, but probably don’t. I change exercises (e.g., switching between front squat and back squat) every mesocycle, which is every six weeks. I lift every other day, but only do one set, just to save time.

I think the main thing is that I don’t get hungry unless I’m woefully undernourished. Some of my climbing buddies went on a don’t-eat-unless-you’re-hungry diet. It worked for them, so I tried doing the same thing, and I ended up losing 15lbs over 5 months. I was already pretty lean before that, so I ended up almost dangerously underweight.

5'8", 135 now; 115 at my lowest. My scale seems to be off by about 5 lbs, so that might really be 140/120. Even so, I'm a lightweight :-).
