Flash Flood 8B flash by Will Bosi

12 December 2022

William Bosi has had a great day in Brione where he flashed Fake Pamplemousse (8A) and Flash Flood (8B). During the last six weeks, Will has flashed seven boulders 8A to 8B (+) as well as redpointed nine boulders 8A to 9A.

Can you tell us more about the two flashes?
So I wanted to go try Kingdom but when we got there the whole face was still soaking wet. Luckily the wall on the right was dry so I sent White Stripe (8A+). We then checked out the Frogger wall and somehow it was mostly dry. I got pretty excited and hopped straight on Fake Pamplemousse (8A) and got the flash! I really wanted to try to flash Liquid Nails (8B+) but it was unfortunately wet so I turned my attention to Flash Flood (8B). I watched a video and then went for it and just stuck the crux move and then managed to battle on. The line is very steep and crimpy so I think it suits me pretty well. Was right at the limit on the crux slap! although I reckon I could have used better beta.
