Have you seen the film 'Sherpa - Trouble on Everest', if so, what are your thoughts about it?

New here, and ready to get started

Hey ya'll,

I've been AWOL for awhile, and just now remembered this site. I'm looking to get started in climbing, and hoping ya'll can help me out. I'm in the North Central Texas area if that matters. I'm just getting tired of the only real physical activity I get being inside at a gym. I've thought about getting into climbing alot before, but I never knew where to look....hopefully I came to the right place.
