Interview on 8a.nu mentions he's done it from after the first move and foot walk, to the top. Clearly far from a done deal, given doing the first move well enough to then do the foot walk correctly, so you're set for the 2nd hand move, seems to be the hardest bit. But still.

Apparently Stefano Ghisolfi and Shawn Rabatou joining the pad party this week too.

Heís said on his podcast recently that, due to Brits being limited for time in Europe now, he wants to combine Burden with a longer Scandi trip, rather than driving up from Swizz this time. I guess the team psyche might change his mind though!

Sounded like he uses his van too rather than flying and itís a long old drive up there!

Surprised to not see the update here as we all sit at the edge of our seats.

He dropped the last move from the start. Looks like a send could be imminent!

Nice little portrait, including some intriguing sequences of him on Violent New Breed.

I see from his stories he's been up to the Carrick Castle boulders today. Features in a lovely little video from Nick Brown, with Dan doing Marratime. That wall is utterly incredible, would be really cool to see the full thing done!

Not to mention Cruachan which must be one of the best 8Bs in the UK.

Lots of knees though.

This quote on Dan's flickr...

The ramp line is currently impossible is my verdict, there is no opposition possible and the ramp slopes. when 8C is a warm up it might be worth a look.

Sounds like Will is the right person for the job!

little film (advertorial?) here too, not much actual climbing content though. If you look closely there you may a product placement or two ;)

I was intrigued by the brief section on Free at Last at Dumbarton. Iíd love to see a full film sometime -
donít know if thatís likely, but the subject certainly merits one.

The thing that I noticed was that FaL appears to top out, whereas for some reason Iíd been under the impression that the project finished at a lower off part way up this stunning wall.

If Willís route goes all the way to the top, then Iím even more impressed!

Anyone know if this is the case (and if there will be a film about the route one day)?

So much more interesting than a little granite boulder in FinlandÖ  :o ::) :chair:

You might be mixing up with Unfinished Symphony? It's left of the requiem crack and stops mid-face.

Ye think at the time it was first climbed it was suggested that the unfinished symphony line might be go to the top but that it would be v hard, not sure if anyone/ Bosi has had a look at it since though?

I'd heard Rob Sutton was having a look, I presume it wasn't just the existing 2/3rds.

Listened to the Will Bosi Jamcrack - nice - genuine rapport & insight and fun to compare the Burden of Dreams speculation with the outcome. Spoilers!

Ooh interesting, it sounds like I've got my wires crossed as I thought Free at Last was the finish to Unfinished Symphony. But it sounds like Free at last is a separate line? And unfinished symphony is still unfinished?

What we need is a topo of this fine wall - anyone?

Also still wondering if FaL does go to the top, as that bit of the video isnít very clearÖ - anyone?

Ta ;D

I'm sure at some point in a podcast Bosi mentioned there is still one project at Dumbarton which does an existing route followed by a heinous sounding 2 move 8C problem, is that Unfinished Symphony? Guess it must be.

No expert (only been once!) but looks like 2 pretty clear lines either side of Requiem?

"Topping out felt absolutely incredible and this route is definitely a highlight for me."

Seem to recall he said the other longstanding project had a super low percentage move high up the wall which he wasn't really psyched for.

Just imagine how hard heíd be climbing if he was psyched for super low percentage moves.

Yes so unfinished symphony is to the left of Requiem crack as you look at the wall and actually moves over into the crack for a couple of hand moves before moving back left again - ye that line "remains unfinished".  Not sure if that is the project will bosi refers to but does kinda sound like it from those podcast quotes.

Free at last is on the right side of Requiem crack.

If that's right, good to hear he's still dark horsing it up.
