Four-time World Ice Climbing Champion, mountaineer and LOWA athlete, Ines Papert, will present her latest show, â€œRock & Ice,â€ in the Foss Auditorium of the American Mountaineering Museum in Golden, Colorado on Wednesday, January 9. She will then depart to the Ouray Ice Festival where she will again present her show on Friday evening, January 11. Viewers will be able to share a thrilling journey into her world.
Ines has worked closely with the LOWA design and product testing teams over the years and was instrumental in the design of the Ice Comp IPA. A champion of many climbing competitions, including those at the Ouray festival, she will be competing there again this year. In addition, she will be at the Ouray LOWA tent on Friday afternoon to give a mixed moderate clinic and on Sunday will award the women’s prizes for the Hari Berger Competition, sponsored by LOWA boots. New LOWA posters will be available for her to autograph.
The American Mountaineering Museum houses an impressive collection of historical mountaineering memorabilia, including the LOWA Boots that Jim Whittaker wore on his ascent of Mt. Everest 50 years ago, becoming the first American to achieve this feat.
