Cyber security firm DarkMatter sponsors female mountain climber's training
Danah Al Ali recently completed technical mountaineering training in Chamonix, the highest summit in the French Alps. During her expedition, she learned about walking on glaciers, snow and rocks and using ice axes, while gaining valuable rock-climbing experience. She has immersed herself in safety training in preparation for her journey to conquer Everest.
"We are moved by Danah Al Ali and her passion for trekking and pushing boundaries," DarkMatter CEO Faisal Al Bannai said. "Being bold, passionate and meticulous in preparation are values that resonate with DarkMatter, and we congratulate her on this latest accomplishment and wish her every success in her future pursuit to scale Mount Everest."
Al Ali's training expedition is not her first impressive endeavor. Already, she has scaled Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa; climbed Mount Elbrus, in the Caucasus Mountains of southern Russia; and has reached Mount Everest Base Camp, in Nepal.
Her interest in trekking and mountain climbing was fully realized three years ago when she trained for her first expedition to Mount Kilimanjaro. Maximizing this unique opportunity, Al Ali used her adventure in Africa to raise funds for a family through the Red Crescent.
