I'm new-ish to bouldering outside. I ended up soloing a 40ft route (made it just over 30ft before fear kicked in, then down climbed), at Horsetooth Reservoir in Ft. Collins, CO. There were quite a few large jagged rocks below that I would have landed on if I fell (even with 2 mats).

In all reality, what injuries could I have sustained? More so, was my fear justifiable or is this a height many good boulder/climbers can manage (off rope)?

"orphaned" knew exactly what he was doing.

I noticed chains bolted on the top of routes, are these for belaying off of, do you clip in with a quickdraw, how do you remove it?

I'm entertaining the thought of getting a veggie oil/ biodiesel conversion van and was wondering if anyone had any experience taking one into the valley. Would I have to worry about bears being drawn to the used veggie oil it's being run on?

I could agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
