William Bosi sweeps through Switzerland

The Scottish climber William Bosi paid a short visit to numerous Swiss bouldering spots and climbed the most difficult lines at high speed. The ticklist he presented is too good to be true.

Bosi recorded the first success of his trip in the bouldering area in western Switzerland Fionnaywhere, within just two hours of project planning, he got the 8c boulder Foundation's Edge could tick off. The Scotsman succeeds in an almost flash ascent in the case of the boulder Scarred For Life (8b +), but only almost. Finally, a second session was necessary to mark the boulder as climbed in the route book.

The next stops from Bosi were the Gotthard and Susten passes. There he climbed other familiar and difficult lines, including Hazel Grace (8b +, Gotthard Pass), Highlander (8b +), Pressed bunny (8b +) and in Flash style Red Snapper (8a +). As the grand finale of his trip, Bosi made a detour to the Schöllenen Gorge, where he found the most famous line in the area, Dulcifer sit (8a +) flash climbed.

Once again, the young Scot presents a considerable ticklist after a climbing trip. The most recent trip brings back memories of his stay in Spain in spring 2021 when he did the 9b + route King Cappella first begging and numerous other routes and boulders in the upper ninth French degree and eighth Fontainebleau degree scored.
