Double Crown at HP40 - Francesca Metcalf

Double Crown at HP40 - Francesca Metcalf
December 04, 2013 - 

The second and final leg of the Triple Crown was held at Horse Pens 40 a few weekends ago. Like the first leg at LRC, I went up with a group of climbers from my collegiate climbing club, and we camped at HP40 with the majority of the other competitors. I was a little nervous going into the competition because I hadn't climbed nearly as well as I had wanted to at LRC, and HP40 tends to give me a hard time.
