An exciting first happened yesterday in the city of Sulaymaniyah in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq; we held our first Online Climbing Video Class at the First Climbing School in Iraq, the Hawraz Climbing School. The class was taught by Baghdad-born Juman Al-Sayegh, the founder of Beyond Climbing, a climbing expedition company based in the UK that brings climbers to the Middle-East.
At this time this is a volunteer program and all funding has come from donations, including all of the equipment that was brought into Iraq. All four instructors are volunteering their time to prepare and conduct classes, and we would ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation. Thank you!
