Columbia chapter

Meet Your Chapter Co-Chairs:

Heather Stuckless grew up in Camden, South Carolina, and spent many weekends in the mountains of North Carolina hiking with her dad. But it wasn't until college where she took a class on rock climbing at the University of South Carolina that she fell in love with the sport and all that the mountains have to offer.  In 2014 she graduated from USC and has since spent almost every weekend learning and climbing in North Carolina. Heather has a deep love for multipitch traditional climbing and the adventures that go along with it.
