Will Bosi Sends 5.15b

Gripped - - NEWS -

Scot­tish climber Will Bosi sent his first 5.15b with La Capella at Siu­rana in Spain. The 21-year-old be­came only the sec­ond U.K. climber to manage a red­point of the grade. He needed only two ses­sions and was work­ing against the clock and wors­en­ing skin con­di­tions. Af­ter the send, he said, “I just can’t stop smil­ing. This route has been a life­time goal of mine and climb­ing it means so much to me.” Bosi be­came the youngest U.K. climber to bag a 5.15a with Rain­shadow at Mal­ham in 2018 be­fore re­peat­ing the grade with the iconic Hub­ble at Raven Tor and a first re­peat of Mal­colm Smith’s Hunger at the Anvil, Loch Goil. Steve Mcclure be­came the first Brit to climb 5.15b with an as­cent of his own route, Rain­man at Mal­ham Cove.
