This is an update from Chamonix: Conditions were totally against our plans on Grandes Jorasses Northface. The new layer of snow did not help at all, nearly no ice on the slabs and spindrift all the time on Pte Marguerite. If someone is planing an alpine route these days, any exposure than north in the higher ranges might be better.  The 0 degrees level was only raising up to app. 2600m. Nevertheless we had some great days out there. It’s always worth trying. #celebratewild #lovelowa #julboathlete #liveclimbrepeat #chamonixExploring the conditions on Grandes Jorasses Northface.  It’s always good to start the day without being hungry. Curious if you also like the new @lyofood breakfast. #celebratewild #lovelowa #julboathlete #liveclimbrepeat #womenwhoexplore #alpineclimbing #mountaineeringIt’s about time to sharpen your tools and crampones. The higher ranges in the ALPS are geting in conditions;) #womenwhoexplore #celebratewild #lovelowa #alpineclimbing #lyofood #edelweissropes #liveclimbrepeatFrom dirt grow the flowers ! By slowly renovating this nearly 100 years old Stonehouse in Istria the enthusiasm for alpine climbing during the upcoming winter season went back. We had a very close call on Shishapangma last spring where some distance to the alpine dangers was needed. This project in Croatia helped me to recover from the shock. It was a useful break but climbing without the alpine is only half of the fun. Very soon we will say hello the a big alpine face again. Today @lindicluka and I have a packing session and heading west during the next days. If you don’t find any posts during next week, it’s because we need to focus on climbing #celebratewild #lovelowa #julboathlete #liveclimbrepeat #womenwhoexplore #edelweissropesThis was my last ‚test run‘ with the new @lowa.outdoor alpine pro gtx boots and the new @arcteryx Alpha FL Jacket before some meetings tomorrow in Jetzendorf and Graching (muc). Looking forward to an exchange of Ideas with the @lowa.outdoor Pro Team. This picture was taken by @lindicluka on the world famouse Watzmann East Face, when we climbed the Route ‚Salzburger Weg‘ in semi Winter conditions yesterday. #lovelowa #celebratewild #liveclimbrepeat #julboathlete #lyofoodSalzburger Weg. This is right at the start of the 2000m Watzmann Eastface. Thanks @lindicluka for taking those photos. Love them all. #celebratewild #lovelowa #liveclimbrepeat #lyofood #julboathlete24h ago we were just near the summit of Watzmann Südspitze after we have climbed Salzburger Weg. Conditions have been quite tricky but it’s so rare that you can still climb those faces at that time of the year. No summer and no proper winter yet. @lindicluka has now completed to climb all the summits of the Watzmann Range. With the Watzmann Family Traverse we did all the others last winter. I am curious, who of you guys climbed every single summit? #celebratewild #lovelowa #julboathlete #liveclimbrepeat #edelweissropes #lyofoodIt’s been my first time, that I have climbed ‘Direkte Gelbe Mauer’ on Untersberg, after most of the bolts have been removed from @alexander_huberbuam and @thomashuber_buam  back in the days. Now its a nice litte adventure again in front of our home door. Pure fun in a good style. #celebratewild #lovelowa #julboathlete #lyofood #liveclimbrepeat #edelweissropesWe are making some progress in Istria. Our nearly 100 years old stonehouse will need some more restauration, to be able to host climbers one day. Our doors will be open to everyone. #celebratewild #lovelowa #liveclimbrepeat #lyofood #edelweissropes #womenwhoexploreSharks of Königssee 8a. Our new Route is finished, just in time before the winter arrives in Bavaria. So happy to share our story on the @arcteryx Bird Blog. Link in Bio. Thanks @stefanwiebel for taking those photos and many more and @lindicluka for beeing patient. #celebratewild #lovelowa #lyofood #liveclimbrepeat @berchtesgadener_land #alpineclimbingClimbing long routes in the mountains is, what drives me. When it’s the route you opened, even better. Thanks @stefanwiebel for the photos #celebratewild #lovelowa #liveclimbrepeat #lyofood #edelweissropesIf you have completed a first ascent, there are always some question marks. How hard it will be? Am I able to send? Will the weather keep stabile? Is the crux still dry? What will be the routes name? Those kind of thoughts kept me (us) busy for some time. You will find the answers and photos from @stefanwiebel on the @arcteryx Bird Blog soon. This shot was been taken during some work of cleaning and working the pitches. #celebratewild #lovelowa #liveclimbrepeat #julboathlete #lyofood #edelweissropes @climax_magazineCheck out the latest issue of Allmountain Magazine. It’s all about Iceclimbing. Makes me psyched to get ready for the cold season, after finishing the main project this summer. Read some inside information from Dani Arnold and myself. Thanks Karin Steinbach for the interview. #celebratewild #lovelowa #liveclimbrepeat #julboathlete #lyofoodMaking some progress on the new route, we opened with @lindicluka in summer. With the support of friends I slowly start believing into the free ascent one day. Thanks Flo Scheimpflug for good vibes high above Berchtesgaden yesterday. #celebratewild #lovelowa #julboathlete #liveclimbrepeat #womenwhoexplore #edelweissropes #lyofoodThe long journey to Biokovo was worth it last weekend. I totally can recommend the Festival, every year around 8th oct. We definitely made new friends in Croatia. #celebratewild #lovelowaAlpinism on the Edge of Dreams! This is the only picture after we got caught in an Avalanche on Nyanang Ri during acclimatization of the Shishapangma Southface Expedition with @lindicluka last spring. Tough memories and still not easy to talk about it in our lecture. We are on the road, last weekend in Biokovo/Croatia at the alpine climbers meeting. Amazing athmosphare, great hospitality and only good local red wine from Dalmatia. #celebratewild #lovelowa #liveclimbrepeat #lyofood #julboathlete #edelweissropes #alpinism #alpinismontheedgeofdreamsIf someone wants to know, how we have built this snowcave on Passo Superior in Patagonia with @lindicluka , come and join our lecture in Biocovo/Croatia this weekend. The Mountain Festival is a celebration of climbing while  touching some best mediterranean limestone. #celebratewild #lyofood #liveclimbrepeat #fitzroytent #lovelowa  #patagoniaargentinaThe Fall is my favorite season for Paragliding. Save and fun! While hiking to get to the launch, sorting out some thoughts about projects. I think that I am ready for writing another book, but this will need some time. I want to share my experience with the community again. I do have some ideas but which topics would  interest you? #celebratewild #lyofood #lovelowa #liveclimbrepeat #julboathlete

Climber in Rock and Ice

Ines Papert

What fascinates me about climbing? To explore new territory! What makes me strong? Physical power, innate mental fortitude and emotional strength, decisiveness and endless curiosity. As well as enjoying quality personal time, which I experience at home with my son, family and friends, and on the road with a team.
