A very large crowd turned out in Trinity College Dublin last night ( 10th December) for the 2015 Lynam Lecture which was delivered by four times Ice Climbing World Champion , Ines Papert. Ines is regarded as one of the world's most accomplished climbers and her presentation last night gave an amazing insight into the mindset of an inspirational climber who is constantly setting new standards for ice, mixed, rock and alpine climbing.

Ines took the audience on a trip around the globe to unclimbed alpine summits in the Himalayas, Taghia in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, new ice lines on Baffin Island in the Arctic, winter routes in Norway and free multi-pitch rock routes all over the world. She took those present on a journey exploring remote places and finding new alpine terrain with wonderful accompanying images, video and soundtracks.


Members of the Lynam Family were present for the lecture and Chris Lynam, Joss’s grandson, presented Ines with the Joss Lynam memorial medal.

The Lynam Lecture was preceded by the Dublin launch of the new Mountaineering Ireland guidebook, ‘Rock Climbing in Donegal’. The official launch had taken place earlier in the week in Donegal. Alan Tees, former president of Mountaineering Ireland, congratulated Iain Miller on the book together with all those who assisted in the production of the book, including David Flanagan. He then gave the guidebook a Dublin launch. The new guidebook is a select guide to rock climbing in Donegal and the author, Iain Miller was on hand to briefly outline options for rock climbing in Donegal. He noted that he has spent the past nine years exploring Donegal and stated that Donegal is unsurpassed in terms of climbing options. The guidebook provides a lifetime of outstanding world class rock climbing in some of the most beautiful, remote and unspoilt places in Ireland.

Mountaineering Ireland would like to express its deep appreciation to all who attended the evening and made it such a joyous night. In particular Mountaineering Ireland would like to thank Ines Papert, who not only delivered an outstanding Lynam Lecture but who also delivered two excellent master classes in ice climbing earlier in the day. Mountaineering Ireland would also like to sincerely thank the Lynam Family, German Embassy in Dublin, Iain Miller and Alan Tees and all who supported the event.
