      Black Diamond athlete Ines Papert traveled to the International Ice and Snow Festival in town of Harbin, the capital of Heilongjiang Province northern China. Organizers of the festival allowed her to climbed on many of the massive ice structures. A small ice archway in the middle of the city (and outside of the festival), however, also caught her eye and she made a quick poach of the ice arch. Here is a video of the her poaching the urban ice arch (complete with footage of Ines running through the streets wearing crampons).

        from Franz Walter Added

        Kyrgyzstan, late summer. Five mountain ranges to the Chinese border twelve to Kazakhstan. Snow covered peaks, riverbeds winding through green valleys, nomads spending their summer in their yurts. Together with her son Manu, Ice Climber Ines Papert is on a journey through the country, heading towards Mount Kyzyl Asker for a first ascent climbing project. The camera follows Manu‘s point of view and is a reflection on what it means to be on a journey as a 11 year old child. From the crowded market of Bishkek they travel south to Lake Issyk-Kul and the little side valleys, heading on to the highlands of Lake Song Kul before they reach the city of Naryn, the gateway to the Tian Shan mountains. One year before Ines had already been to the Kokshaal-Too valley for a first attempt on Kyzyl Asker. Tyndýk is an invitation to a calm journey set against the background of the pristine Kyrgyz landscape.

                  Ines Papert, Jon Walsh and Joshua Lavigne, travel to the northern landscapes of Auyuittuq in Baffin Island. They go looking for adventure and an unclimbed wall on the hidden flanks of Mt. Asgard – what they find left them with more questions than answers. As the arctic night settled around us, the descent continued in the sleet and cloud. The fog was heavy with texture and shadows. Our senses were confined to a small sphere of light. The rappel lines extended below with Jon at the end, our three spheres sinking in the abyss. We had managed to descend approximately 800 meters, including ten rappels and several hundred meters of wet and loose down-climbing. According to Jon, we were only three hundred meters from the glacier, but it was over wet slabs and if we decided to rappel our ropes would likely get stuck. If our ropes got stuck – we would be perilously connected to the earth as hypothermia would consume our rational decision making. He continued towards the edge nonetheless, which was 10 meters from me. I couldn’t see him. He was trying to find an answer to resolve our predicament, but the pieces had already been put in motion and we only had a few moves left before we were in a ‘checkmate’. Having already committed to the descent, we were wet, hypothermic and precariously stuck in a labyrinth of slabs. We had one move left, which was to sit, suffer and wait for the storm to break. Jon turned around and came back to where Ines and I had already found a ledge. We randomly emptied our bags and huddled under a flapping tarp and pulled a down sleeping bag over our heads, which quickly turned to wet oatmeal. The night crept along and our body temperatures quietly dropped. The rain and snow continued and our standby shelter was no longer a place of refuge. I was afraid. Jon’s hypothermia was worsening, the storm was intensifying and we had no water for hot drinks. If we didn’t change our circumstances soon, the last move would have been played. We needed the fortress of Asgard to release it’s grip or a guardian to pry us from it.

Vijf bergketens tot de Chinese grens en twaalf tot Kazakhstan. In de brede valleien met kronkelende rivierbeddingen, omzoomd met witte pieken, brengen nomaden de zomer door in hun ‘yurts’.
