So I wanted to start something where I ask a different member every week or so some questions, take their picture, and post it on on the blog. Well this is going to be the first one. I need to come up with a name for it though….Meet The Members, Who’s That Dude/Gal?, The HH Hero’s of the month…etc. This is where I need everyone’s input. You guys should pick the name. Leave a comment on what you think this section of the blog should be called and if I use yours you can be the next person to be interviewed!

What goals do you have in climbing?

Lindsey- Right now (because of pregnancy), to keep doing it.
Loren- Still be climbing trad, outside, when im in my 80’s.

What is the most valuable lesson climbing has taught you?

Being a climbing couple…pros and cons?
