Establishing the First Climbing School and Outdoor Education Program in Iraq.
HAPPENING NOW Build 10 meter wall in Iraq
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 Hand-Making their own gear, to learn how to climb. The center is equipped with classrooms, theater/cinema, internet, and most importantly, 5,000 sq. ft. of land upon which we will construct a 9 m / 30 ft tall climbing wall that we designed with the help of experts from around the world. 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.
