Ines Papert - Germania

Ines Papert was born in Wittemberg (Germany) in 1974. She comes from a family of musicians and she studied physiotherapy before discovering the mountains, aged 20. Her talent and drive meant that she excelled on ice climbing competitions; she retired in 2006 to fully devote herself to outdoor climbing and expeditions. Her impressive cv entails achievements such as free climbing the routes Symphonie de liberté (900 m, 8a) on the Eiger (2003), Letzte Ausfahrt Titlis (500 m, 8a+) on Titlis (2004) and Camillotto Pellissier (500 m, 8b) on the Cima Grande di Lavaredo (2007). She opened Power of silence (400 m, 7c+) on the Middle Huey Spire (Canada) and Cobra Norte (1300 m, WI5, M8) on Kwangde Shar (Nepal) in 2009, with routes in China/Kirghizstan (Great Wall of China), Baffin Island (Mount Asgard) and again in Nepal (Likhu Chuli I) in the following years. In 2011 she climbed Illuminati (120 m, M11) in Vallunga (Dolomites, Italy) and Schwarze Madonna (300 m, 8a) on Untersberg (Germany). Among her most recent accomplishments, completed with Luka Lindic, whom she married in 2020, we include the spectacular Lost in China (1200 m, WI5+, M6, first ascent) on Kyzyl Asker between China and Kirghizstan (2016), Supercombo (800 m, M7) on the north-east face of Piz Badile in Switzerland (2017), Sharks of Königssee (300 m, 8a, first ascent) on Alpltalkopf in Germany (2018), The sound of silence (1200 m, M8, WI5, first ascent) on Mount Fay in Canada (2019) and Wolke 7 (400 m, 8a, first ascent) on Hinteres Feuerhörndl, once again in Germany (2020).
