Like 4x4s in climbing … except not.

In her first two years of rock climbing, Nashville-native Courtney Woods managed to send a V10 boulder and 5.13a sport climb … Aside from being a monstrous crusher both in the climbing and yoga realms, and wife to lucky husband, Daniel Woods (talk about a promising gene pool!), Courtney has some quirks and experiences that might take you by surprise in this 5×5 Revelations:

1. Weird is subjective! I think what is weird to others maybe isn’t that weird to me, but I guess I do have 2 webbed toes on my right foot.

2. I don’t like trash bags that aren’t the right fit for the trash can.

3. I have probably 40 different pens because I get bored with the same one.

4. I drive a different way home every time.

5. I’m still obsessed with Harry Potter.
