Will Bosi flashes Dagger (8B/+) and almost Dreamtime (8C)

Will Bosi paid a visit to the Bouldering Mecca Cresciano in Ticino and let off steam on the Dreamtime block: within one day he flashed The Dagger (8B/+) and climbed Dreamtime (8C) on the fourth attempt.

Will Bosi on fire. All news articles about the Scottish climber have been starting like this or something similar lately. The most recent example: his short trip to Ticino. In Cresciano flashed the 23-year-old first The Dagger (8B/+) and then doubled with a near-flash ascent of Dreamtime (8C) after. He finally managed the test piece of bouldering legend Fred Nicole in the fourth go.

When will Bosi's 8C flash follow?

On the Dreamtime block, Will Bosi not only climbed The Dagger, but also the ultimate classic: Dreamtime. Written down in history as the world's first 8C boulder, the Fred Nicole Testpiece continues to attract the world's strongest climbers.

"What a crazy day. At first I barely found the block, then flashed The Dagger and then almost Dreamtime as well.»

The fact that Will Bosi almost flashed the line and was then able to climb it on the fourth attempt not only underlines his incredible strength, but also raises a number of questions. For example, how long will it be before he flashes an 8C boulder? Or whether his Boulder Honey Badger is really “only” 8C+? It remains exciting.
