The Dagger 8B (+) flash by Bosi and close to flash Dreamtime 8B+/C

7 December 2022

William Bosi has had an amazing day in Cresciano where he first flashed The Dagger 8B (+) and later was very close to flash Dreamtime 8B+/C.

The Dagger: "Super happy to flash this classic!! Defiantly would have been my anti style two years ago so really psyched with my training."
Dreamtime: "Sooo good!! Was really close to the flash but slipped off after the crux. Luckily it went down soon after."

Where and how did you fall?
I fell on the flip move before the good holds just missing the hold. Basically, as it had rained so much in the last days it was just a bit humid so I was slipping down the holds I think.

How would you grade Dreamtime?
It’s hard to say, definitely soft end 8C if it is 8C.

How long will you stay in the area and what is next?
Just till Monday then I go to Arco to look at Excalibur 😁 (Ghisolfi's 9b+ project). My main goal was to try flash Off the Wagon (8B+) but it has rained so much up there that I’m not sure I’ll get to try it. br>

Are you going to focus on comps in 2023 and trying to make it to the Olympics?
I am not that keen on the current format so I won’t be trying for the 2024 Olympics. However, I’m definitely still open to comps in the future if things change.
