Six 8C's and two 9a's in four weeks by Will Bosi

William Bosi has made a trip to Moravský kras where he the first three weeks did six 8C's and Kostěj nesmrtelný 9a (after a broken hold). Later he was #2 after Adam Ondra in the Czech Nationals and did, Perla východu (9a). "Incredible route and definitely the king line of the crag had a proper battle to get this one done! Even falling on the last move... grade wise it feels far more like 9a+ which is crazy considering Adam climbed this when he was 14!! Time will tell I guess." (c) Band of birds

Moravský Kras is a predominantly limestone area north of Brno which is the home of Adam Ondra, who acted as a guide to Will on parts of this trip. The area is characterised by technical and challenging climbing on often polished limestone and rarely sees visits from the elite climbing circuit despite multiple hard boulders and routes established by the likes of Ondra and Martin Stranik.

“It has been an amazing experience to not only explore the Moravsky Kras area but be welcomed by the local climbing community. Ahead of the trip, I trained probably harder than I ever have in preparation for a climbing trip and so was really happy that I was able to tick so many classics of the area. I am psyched to come back again soon to continue exploring the area and training with the locals!”
