HIPPYTREE WELCOMES CLIMBER JIMMY WEBB TO THE TRIBE
Hermosa Beach, CA – HippyTree is proud to announce the signing of Jimmy Webb, one of the top climbing talents in the country. Out of Chattanooga, Tennessee, the 27 year old is a fixture in the climbing and bouldering community. Coming off a year of increasing exposure and accomplishments, Webb is excited to join a brand committed to supporting athletes who are redefining what’s possible.
“I’m happy to join a brand that’s changing things in the climbing world. There are so many brands in the outdoor space, I’m lucky to be with guys that aren’t afraid to think outside the box and try something fresh when it comes to apparel design.”
One of a handful of climbers to ascend multiple V15 problems, Webb’s list of achievements continues to grow. Webb was the winner of the 2013 Psicobloc Masters Series, beating several of the world’s best climbers. He has also flashed six V13 or harder boulder problems, leading many to consider him the world’s best flash boulderer.
Welcome to the Tribe, Jimmy.
