Silent Singer 8C by Will Bosi

7 June 2022

William Bosi has done his seventh 8C during the last ten weeks, Silent Singer in Bowder Stone, which was put up by Aidan Roberts earlier this year. "Really happy to get the second ascent of this one! three really fun crimp moves lead to a weird kneebar which cost a lot of attempts. When the knee works the top of the boulders not too bad though."

Could you please say something about the process how you took it down?
So I guess I had 3 sessions but in the first session I was only able to try the first two moves as the top was wet. In the second session, I got really close multiple times, failing from the kneebar at the end of the boulder… Then yesterday I was able to get it down the third go of the day. It felt really important to do it fast as it’s very sharp and with the hot weather now skin would become an issue very fast I think!
