“Out of all the instructors that I have the privilege to be instructed under, Fahmi stands out.
The willingness to impart real life experiences into the lesson material and to go further than the minimum course material requirements is a testament to, not only his instructorship, his commitment to the highest levels of rock climbing safety and building community.
