Ines Papert Repeats Hard Scottish Route
Ines Papert is perhaps the world’s best known German ice climber. She recently made the first female ascent of a very hard route in Scotland called The Hurting.
Papert was in Scotland to speak at the Fort William Mountain Festival. Fresh off a repeat of Ritter der Kokonuss, she was psyched to get on some hard Scottish trad.
Papert Sends Ritter der Kokonuss
Not long after arriving, she sent The Secret on Ben Nevis and Never Mind on Coire an Lochain.
With her partner Seppit Pfnuer, she made an attempt on The Hurting that ended in a dangerous fall. She returned with Simon Yearsley to complete the route.
