Pierwsza szkoła wspinaczkowa w Iraku

#ShaxawaniIraq to znaczy #WspinaczkawIraku

Nasz projekt stworzy pierwszą szkołę wspinaczkową w Iraku, tworząc ścieżki, tam gdzie kiedyś kultura widziała bariery, przez ich nieposkromione góry. Zajęcia skupią się na wspinaczce skałkowej i umiejętnościach alpinistycznych, które pozwolą ekspedycjom odkryć jak dotąd nie wzniesione lokalne szczyty. Program odbędzie się w odnoszącym sukcesy domu kultury utworzonym w 2007 r., który obsługuje ponad 1500 dzieci i dorosłych. Będzie nim kierować grupa alpinistów irackich, którzy pokonali wielkie przeciwności, takie jak wykuwanie własnego sprzętu, aby nauczyć się wspinać. Dom kultury ma sale lekcyjne, teatry, internet, a co najważniejsze, 5 hektarów / 12 akrów ziemi, na których zbudujemy ścianę wspinaczkową o wysokości 9 m / 30 stóp. Oprócz ściany nasza wizyta zapewni kompletny asortyment sprzętu wspinaczkowego i opublikuje pierwszą książkę instruktażową alpinizmu w języku ojczystym, Podstawowe Zasady Alpinizmu, przetłumaczoną z francuskiego.

Die erste Kletterschule im Irak

#Shaxawanilraq bedeutet #KletternIrak

Wir bauen die erste Schule für Klettern im Irak, in der befriedeten Stadt Sulaymaniyah, nahe den Kurdischen Bergen auf. Die Kurse werden sich auf Felsklettern und Bergsteigerfähigkeiten konzentrieren die kleine Exepeditionen ermöglichen sollen, die bis jetzt unentdeckten umliegenden Berggipfel zu erforschen. Das Programm wird in einem bisher erfolgreichen Familien- und Gemeindezentrum, gegründet im Jahr 2006 stattfinden. Dieses Zentrum betreut über 1500 Kinder und Erwachsene. Angeführt wird das Kletterprogramm von einer Gruppe irakischer Bergsteiger, welche große Anstrengungen unternommen haben Klettern zu lernen. Die Liegenschaft des Gemeindezentrums ist mit Unterrichtsräumen, Theatersaal, Internetanschluss und – am wichtigsten – 5 Hektar Land ausgestattet. Auf diesem Areal werden wir eine 9 Meter hohe Kletterwand installieren. Zusätzlich zu dieser Wand werden wir bei unserem nächsten Besuch eine komplettes Sortiment von dafür benötigter Kletterausrüstung. Darüber hinaus werden wir das erste anleitende Bergsteigebuch in Landessprache „Grundlagen des Bergsteigens“ herausgeben, welches aus dem Französischen übersetzt wurde.

La Prima Scuola di Arrampicata in Iraq

#ShaxawaniIraq significa #ArrampicataIraq

Il nostro progetto consentira’ di realizzare la prima scuola di arrampicata in IRAQ, creando passaggi attraverso le loro imponenti montagne li’ dove una certa cultura vedeva solo barriere. Le attivita’ saranno focalizzate nell’arrampicata su roccia e nello sviluppo di tecniche di alpinismo che consentiranno di realizzazre spedizioni alla scoperta di vette mai scalate prima. Il corso si svolgera’ presso un centro comunitario di grande importanza costituito nel 2007 che presta servizi ad oltre 1500 tra adulti e bambini. Sara’ tenuto da un gruppo di alpinisti iracheni che hanno superato grandi avversita’, tra cui anche la sperimentazione della propria attrezzatura, per imparare come arrampicare.  L’infrastruttura e’ dotata di aule, teatri, collegamento internet e soprattutto 5 ettari/12 acri  di terreno su cui noi costruiremo un muro di parete di roccia alto 9 metri. Oltre al muro, in occasione della nostra visita consegneremo un assortimento completo di equipaggiamento per alpinismo e pubblicheremo il primo manuale di alpinismo  in lingua locale, I Principi di Base Dell’Alpinismo, tradotto dal francese.

Our project will establish the first climbing school in the country of Iraq, creating gateways where a culture once saw barriers, through their indomitable mountains. Classes will focus on rock climbing and mountaineering skills that will enable expeditions to discover the as of yet unclimbed local peaks. The program will take place in a successful community center established in 2007 that services over 1,500 children and adults. It will be headed by a group of Iraqi mountaineers who have overcome great adversity, such as forging their own gear, to learn how to climb. The facility is equipped with classrooms, theater/cinema, internet, and most importantly, 5 hectares / 12 acres of land upon which we will construct a 9 m / 30 ft tall climbing wall. In addition to the wall, we will deliver a complete assortment of climbing equipment and publish the first native language mountaineering instructional book, Basic Principles of Mountaineering, translated from French.
