Weekend Whipper: “Sista Bossen” (5.13b), Bohuslän, Sweden

Sebastian gets a nice soft catch, but he falls a looooong way.

By Rock and Ice | August 31st, 2018

Sista Bossen“The Last Boss,” in English—is a Swedish 9-, or about a 5.13b at the crag of Hallinden. “One of the best crags” in Bohuslän, Sweden, according to Sebastian, this week’s victim.

This Whipper is from his second lead attempt on the route. He looks solid… until he doesn’t. His receives a nice soft catch, so even though Sebastian sails a long way, he happily gives his belayer a high-five. He managed to send the route on his next try.

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!

That belayer should have been way closer to the wall. No wonder his climber fell so far. His first piece may not have popped out either.
