Ines Papert was, despite her being German, sponsored by Black Diamond and Arc’teryx and having won four World Cups in ice climbing, not a familiar name to me. I stumbled across her book VERTICAL: Life on the Steepest Faces by coincidence, and was positively surprised by the interesting story of this woman, and the superb mountain photography.
It’s cold. I wish I’d have a hot drink, to warm me up from the inside. But I don’t want to get the stove out in this weather. Lets see if there’s still some tea in my Thermos bottle. Thank god, there’s still some in there. Now just to find a spot outside of the wind, and then to enjoy that hot cup of tea.
