William Bosi has done it. After intensive preparation, Will rebuilted the original boulder in the bouldering hall, among other places, he now managed the first repetition of the world’s first 9A boulder.
„What an incredible journey! Thanks a lot for the support, I’ll comment more soon.“
The boulder was first climbed by Finnish climber Nalle Hukkataival back in 2016 and has not been repeated despite many attempts by renowned climbers.
The boulder is located in the Lappnor bouldering area (which is why the boulder became known as the Lappnor Project), about 100 kilometres east of the Finnish capital Helsinki. It is about four metres high and hangs about 45 degrees above and consists of only five extremely difficult moves. Nalle Hukkataival describes the project as „a very simple boulder with straightforward and brutal frontal climbing. No tricks, just brute strength.“
After the first ascent, Hukkataival named the boulder Burden of Dreams, in reference to Werner Herzog’s 1982 documentary film Fitzcarraldo of the same name.
