Will Bosi climbs his first 9b, La Capella at Siurana in Spain

by

21-year-old William Bosi has climbed La Capella at Siurana in Spain today. In doing so he has sent his first 9b sports climb.

Last day best day as the saying goes. After coming tantalising close yesterday by falling off the very last hard move, Britain’s Will Bosi set the record straight today and just before travelling back home redpointed La Capella at Siurana in Spain. Freed by Adam Ondra in 2011 and repeated by Stefano Ghisolfi and Daniel Woods in early 2018, this short and intense testpiece is graded 9b, making it Bosi’s hardest climb to date. After a mere three sessions...

The Scotsman had made a name for himself when, aged just 17, he became Britain’s youngest climber to redpoint 9a, and later he confirmed his talent and form with repeats of other stout testpieces such as Ben Moon’s Hubble at Raven Tor. Bosi skipped the 9a+ grade altogether today and is only the second British climber to send 9b, after Steve McClure blasted his way up Rainman at Malham Cove in 2017.
