Goat Sighting - Khumbu Climbing School

This weeks Goat Sighting comes to us from the Khumbu Climbing School from a recent trip they took to Nepal. While in Nepal the KCS teaches Sherpa certain climbing skills and technical aspects of climbing that ensure both their physical safety while climbing and guiding in addition to ensuring the financial stability for them to earn a better living for themselves and their families.

Backcountry.com is proud to donate useful climbing items to the Khumbu Climbing School.

Typically with the weekly winner of the "Show Us your Goat" Goat Sighting contest the photographer will receive a Backcountry.com Organic Goat Tee Shirt but given that this winner is the Khumbu Climbing School we will make an additional donation for the course to be held in January of 2008.

Please consider making a donation of your own to the Khumbu Climbing School through ActiveGiving.com's page for them.

And as always, if you think you've got what it takes to stick a winner but you haven't got a sticker to stick, well head on over to Backcountry.com and get yourself a FREE goat sticker by filling out the form or placing an order as each box we ship gets a free sticker. Then get out there and stick it, take a photo and submit it online.
