An article in today’s Aspen Daily News discusses the Pakistani Women’s Climbing Camp, a joint project of the American Alpine Club and Alpine Club of Pakistan. Eight American women are leading an effort to cultivate a tradition of mountaineering among Pakistani women. Local response to the project was overwhelming and there will be about 100 participants on this expedition.
Such efforts are groundbreaking in a country where cultural norms impede women from participating in sports. Follow the PWCC’s progress on their blog and support their effort.
