Bosi Repeats Isles of Wonder Sit

Will Bosi has made the second ascent of Aidan Roberts' boulder, Isles of Wonder SDS (f8C+), at Carreg Mianog Boulders, North Wales. Initially graded at 8C+, Will has suggested a downgrade to 8C.

The boulder, and its intense shouldery sequence, was one of the featured climbs in Mastery, a documentary about first ascensionist Aidan Roberts and his recent bouldering endeavours.

Aidan broke the boulder down as 'Hard 8C to the stand, then 8B to the top', the second half being Pete Robins' pre-existing 8B boulder Isles of Wonder (f8B). Aidan further shared that the sit down start was 'maybe the best boulder [he had] ever developed'.

Gregory Baltoro and Deva packs

Gregory set the standard for fit and comfort on packs, there are no better examples of this than the Baltoro and Deva, designed to carry everything you need on the biggest trips.

The Baltoro and Deva provide space for all your essentials (and non-essentials). The Freefloat A3 dynamic carry system allows for max comfort, even with heavier loads. An odor-fighting mesh and ventilated AirCushion backpanel deliver a cooler, fresher pack for extended trips deep into the backcountry.
