Ultra Instinct (8C) by Will Bosi

William Bosi has repeated Ultra Instinct (8C) at Forest rock and here is the video. The FA was done this spring by Orrin Coley after working it for three years. The 24-year-old is a superior #1 in the 8a ranking game, his 12 399 points is the highest ever achieved on 8a since we started with the scorecards in 2000.

Can you tell us more about UI and the potential sit start as well as continuing the roof?
It took 4 sessions in total, one last year where I did the higher start. Then one where it was mostly wet and I couldn’t really try. Then finally to redpoint sessions last week. It’s a cool boulder as it’s just big pure power moves! There is definitely potential for a sit start and I’m hoping to try that soon but I think it will make it a lot harder! You could also continue into the roof I think but it would start getting way too high
