Whether on precipitous ice or tough rock climbing sections, when it comes to my gear I don't make any compromises. Particularly when it comes to footwear, the only type that's good enough is the best. And that's why I always stick to my LOWAs!

News about Ines Papert

With LOWA: in the ice

After completing her education as a physiotherapist, Ines Papert left her home in Saxony, Germany, in 1993 and moved to Berchtesgaden in the Alps. It was there that she discovered her passion for the mountains and, particularly, for ice climbing. In 2000, she gave birth to her son Emanuel, which she calls the biggest highlight of her life. Not shortly after, in 2001, she won for the first time the Ice Climbing World Cup and thus began her professional career. Papert won the world championship title all together four times, until 2006 when she withdrew from the World Cup event.

It wasn't only on the ice, but also on rock, that Ines began to feel increasingly more at home. In 2003 she climbed in a one-day ascent the "Symphonie de Liberté" on the north face of the Eiger. In her book "Im Eis" she describes the balancing act of being a mother and a professional climber and how she found her way on the toughest route.
