Watch Will Bosi Stick a Kneebar for a V15 Repeat

The problem at Bowder Stone was fist climbed earlier this year

Will Bosi grabs the second ascent of Silent Singer V15, a new problem established by Aidan Roberts at U.K.’s Bowder Stone. “Really happy to get the second ascent of this one,” Bosi said on his 8a.nu log.

“Three really fun crimp moves lead to a weird kneebar which cost a lot of attempts. When the knee works the top of the boulder is not too bad though.”

Bosi is one of the U.K.’s top climbers with 5.15 first ascent and V14 flashes, such as his recent ascent of Charizard. At 17, he became the youngest Brit to climb 5.14d at the time with Rainshadow at Malham Cove. 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 British climber to tick a 5.15b abroad with his ascent of La Capella.
