NEWSFLASH: Will Bosi climbs Hubble 9a

Will Bosi has made a rare ascent of Hubble at Raven Tor. It has been climbed by just a handful of people since Ben Moon made the first ascent in 1990. Will is no stranger to hard limestone, becoming the youngest Brit to tick 9a earlier this year with his ascent of Rainshadow.

Will first tried Hubble earlier this year and has made a few trips down to try the route since, before finally utilising half-term to tick the route earlier today. Paul Diffley from Hot Aches was on site and captured the ascent on film - keep your eyes peeled for a feature about Will soon.

We will catch up with Will in the next couple of days and get his thoughts on his ascent.

8th if Rich Simpson did it. Were there any witnesses for that claim? It's fairly unusual to be at Raven Tor when no one else is around so just wondering. It's also the first time the route has had more than one ascent in a single year. Be interesting to know how hard he found it compared to Rainshadow.
