The video of Ines Papert, Joseph Pfnür, Luka Lindič and Paul McSorley documenting the first ascent of Ruby Supernova up Slanghoek Peak in South Africa first ascended in June 2017.

In summer 2017 an international team comprised of Ines Papert, Joseph Pfnür, Luka Lindič, Paul McSorley and photographer Franz Walter forged a new route up Slanghoek Peak, the highest and steepest mountain in South Africa. Their 520m high Ruby Supernova was established ground-up, onsight, without bolts and with one bivouac, past difficulties up to ED1 7b+.
