In this excellent short film by Hans Hornberger we see Ian Parnell, accompanied by visiting top climbers Ines Papert, Mathieu Audibert and Audrey Gariepy, winter climbing in Scotland.

Their visit, which occurred last winter, saw the team racking up a considerable ticklist, which included Ines Papert climbing two grade VIII,8 routes.

  • You can read more details of the trip in this UKC News Item from February 2010.

Excellent. Oddly, I've just read Audrey Gariepy's account of this in "Gripped" magazine.

It was fantastic to see someone like Papert (whose track-record had been in a very different style of climbing) coming to Scotland and loving the medium and respecting the ethic. I hope she'll be back and would expect some more head-turning performances when she does.
