Will Bosi has claimed the first ascent of ‘King Capella’ at Siurana, Spain and has proposed the grade of 9b+. If confirmed, it would make him the first British climber to climb the grade (and sixth in the world).
Bosi climbed La Capella (9b) in the same sector in early 2020 which made him the first Brit to climb the grade abroad and during this trip added another two first ascents to the area, La Furia de Jabali (9b) and Last Night (9a) but King Capella, bolted by David Brasco, represented a significant step up in difficulty according to Bosi.
It took Will 10 sessions to complete King Capella. The route starts left of La Capella at the edge of the scooped wall into a set of bouldery sequences before the pressure finally relents.
“With powerful moves that don’t let up and having big all points off moves, King Capella was like I got to be Chris Sharma for a day, it was amazing!” - said Will.
