Yasmin Gahtani has made substantial contributions to the world of rock climbing and hiking. She was appointed as the executive director of the Saudi Climbing and Hiking Federation (SCHF) in 2018 to advance and popularize climbing in her country.
Yasmin’s interest in rock climbing started in 2013, and since then, she has climbed in various countries, including Italy, France, Switzerland, Spain, the US, and her home country of Saudi Arabia. In January 2017, she became the first Saudi rock-climbing instructor to be certified by the American Mountain Guides Association, a testament to her dedication and expertise in the field.
In addition to her rock-climbing achievements, Yasmin is also an accomplished hiker. She successfully hiked to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, in 2015, and has taken part in various other climbs, such as the Aiguille du Tour, Tete Blanche, Petite Fourche, and the surrounding peaks on the Col du Midi in Chamonix, France.
