First 8B+ for Vincourková and (flash) for Bosi
Great climbs in the Czech Republic19 April 2022
Two important achievements among the many of these Easter days
Also this year the Easter period proved to be full of results in bouldering! Among the most relevant we report a couple both located in the Czech Republic, where we find Jana Vincourkova and Will Bosi in great shape.
The first, which we had already know in 2020 on the occasion of her first 8Bs, now takes the next step, closing her first 8B+ in the Labské Údolí area. Prehistorik, a line first climbed by Martin Stranik and rated 8B/ 8B+ of which Jana made the second ascent. Whatever the final grade, a very high level result for female bouldering!
Who has already demonstrated the extreme level on several occasions and on all terrains is Will Bosi, a Scottish climber who certainly needs no introduction. While visiting himself the Czech Republic, a few days ago he had already sent flash an 8B in Moravský kras with the line of Svini Mor, signed by Adam Ondra. Again in the same style, here he is, however, achieving a result that projects him to the top of the boulder considering a flash ascent. Under the eyes of Ondra himself, Bosi in fact climbed on his first try Charizard's 8B+ in Sklapsko, a boulder problem by Martin Stranik.
Let’s recall that so far only Daniel Woods, Adam Ondra, Jimmy Webb, Ned Feehally, Tomoa Narasaki and Jakob Schubert could boast flash climbs of such difficulty and therefore, with this exploit, Will joins a very limited elite.
In addition to the post on Instagram, above we can see the video of the ascent of this particular line, given the peculiar shape of the boulder on which it develops.
