Video: How Will Bosi climbed the world's toughest boulder

Six years after the first ascent by Nalle Hukkataival, Will Bosi succeeds in repeating Burden of Dreams (9A) in Lappnor, Finland. In the video you can look over the shoulder of the strong Scotsman on his way to the world's toughest boulder.

Will Bosi's journey to Burden of Dreams does not begin in Finland, but in Sheffield, England, where he makes his first “steps” on a true-to-life replica and begins to build self-confidence. The trip to Finland is the next step. Will Bosi studied the grips and perfected his movements for more than three weeks. On April 12, 2023, the Scot will fulfill his dream of climbing Burden of Dreams - the rest is history.
