Hey, guys. My name's Kaleigh and I'm new to the community. I've been climbing since February of this year, so I'll be achieving one-year status shortly. I'm much more savvy indoors because I'm from Gainesville, FL where it's quite obvious there is no rock climbing. I'm a V3/4ish/5.9ish indoor climber... I've climbed outdoors a few times. I took my first outdoor trip to the Stone Fort in Chattanooga, TN back in April and then I competed in all of the Triple Crown Bouldering Series which put me on rocks at Hound Ears (North Carolina), HP40 (Alabama), and again in Chatt. I sent 'These Feel Like Your Sisters' at the Stone Fort at Triple Crown which is my most esteemed achievement thus far-- not for its grade or difficulty but it's my favorite outdoor problem thus far and I worked really hard at sending it so it felt incredible to walk away from the comp. with that under my belt.

Anyway, that's my introduction.

Howdy! Its amazing how time flies. I'm going on 6 years. Welcome to the group! Going to HP40 is definitely on my tick-list. Have fun, keep climbing and at the earliest come out west to where the real rocks lie (biased opinion of course).
i was just in HP the week after thanksgiving and i'm going again on thursday for another week or so. i love it down there, definitely my favorite place to climb outside. and the people who own the land are awesome too.
anyway, welcome to the group :)
