Tell me about it. I've done that a lot myself, and no doubt I will keep doing it. As I gained more experience, I got more comfortable with it. Over the years the line has shifted, though I did step over my bounds sometimes. I've soloed routes up to the occasional AD and UIAA grade III. Relatively speaking I'm better at steep snow and ice than on rock, so, for me, an AD route with steep snow and ice is easier than an AD route that's mostly an alpine rock climb; for the latter, I want a rope and a partner. Fortunately, I just love climbing, even if it's not hard, so when I solo, I usually look for easier routes (F or PD) and easy rock climbing (UIAA grade I-II). But I make exceptions occasionally.
