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.

And just so we're clear, it's for protection against animals. Not for humans. ...

An insight to Crib Goch!

Hey there people, I am new around here. Just getting to know the climinbing/hiking communities. I am an avid amateur mountain hiker. I have done some Ice climbing before, though I am not strong on the rope aspects!
I love scrambling regardless of grade unless we're talking about a flat very loose scree type climb then I'd rather not! without ropes anyway.
I do have a video to share if I am allowed to post ...
