“Climbing in Nepal has been popular since the 1950′s; yet most Nepalese will never get a chance to try it. KCS is an opportunity for Nepalese to become familiar with their world, as we know it. KCS brings safety and fun to climbing as an avocation and a profession for Nepalese living and working in the mountains. By teaching basic climbing safety systems, as well as English and First Aid, the students are more ready for hire and can express themselves more effectively in this rapidly growing trekking/climbing industry. After climbing in the magic kingdom of Nepal for the past 15 years, it is tremendously meaningful (and fun!!) for me to work with these people who have taught me so much.” – Amy Bullard
