Ann Marie White

aka Monkey Toes! I am a recent college graduate (go Tigers!) tackling the Appalachian Trail NOBO beginning in March 2021. I grew up backpacking throughout the Carolinas and climbing every rock I could get to. While I'm a little sad to be sacrificing my climbing arms for trail legs, it'll be worth it. Hopefully my friends won't make fun of me when I get back and can't climb a 5.6. If they do, I'll just kick them with my now super strong legs.
