Replacing Ropes/Slings/Harness 19-Feb-2015 At 1:05:45 PM jrc
Yvon Chouinard had a pretty good recommendation in his 1973 catalog where he talked about the overall high factors of safety in modern gear. His suggestion was to retire it when you didn't feel comfortable climbing with it.

works OK for me. BTW my most fallen on rope is a 1/3 length of edelrid 9mm bought in 1972 which I still use at Lindfield rocks & other practice areas. Not saying that's a recommendation, mind. the other 1/3 gave up the ghost a few years back when the sheath split but it still held the fall in spite of its white 'guts' spilling out.
