V14 Flash for 5.15 Scottish Climber, See the Send

Watch Will Bosi make quick work of a Czech test-piece boulder

Scottish climber Will Bosi has flashed Charizard V14 at Sklapsko in the Czech Republic. The route was first climbed by Martin Stranik.

One of the first V14 flashes ever recorded was by Adam Ondra in 2009 of Confessions at Cresciano, Switzerland. Jakob Schubert flashed V14 in 2020, Tomoa Narasaki flashed a V14 in 2019 and in 2017 Ned Feehally pulled off an impressive flash of Trust Issues V14 in Rocklands.

At 17, Bosi became the youngest Brit to climb 5.14d at the time with Rainshadow at Malham Cove. Since then, Bosi has become one of the U.K.’s leading climbers. In 2018, he reached the final of IFSC Chamonix Lead Climbing competition which was the first time a male had reached a lead final since 1998.

In 2020, Bosi became the first Brit to climb 5.15b abroad with his ascent of La Capella. In 2021, he made the first ascent of King Capella and graded it 5.15c, but it was later downgraded to 5.15b by Alex Megos and Jakob Schubert.
