Ines Papert gelingt Erstbesteigung des Likhu Chuli I, 6.719 Meter
On 13 November 2013 German alpinist Ines Papert made the first ascent of the hitherto unclimbed Likhu Chuli I (6719m) in Nepal, also referred to as Pig Pherago Shar. Her climbing partner Thomas Senf abandoned his attempt circa 140m below the summit due to frostbite.
Thank you to all our sponsors who supported this expedition:

Iceclimbing beyond the Polar Circle – Ines Papert realizes trad first ascents in Senja, Norway
During the last two weeks Ines Papert enjoyed the beauty of Norway far north.
Together with Thomas Senf, local Bent Vidar Eilertsen, Nina and Christian Schlesener she ventured new lines on the Senja Island, 350 km north of the Polar Circle.
Senja lies next to the Lofoten islands and offers a lot of untouched rock and ice. Ines and friends climbed and opened their routes ‘traditional Norwegian style’ which means without bolts.
