# Anti-Markovnikov addition of HCl

The following reaction has been troubling me for a while now.

Since peroxides won't give the anti-Markovnikov product when used with HCl, I cannot think of any reagents that would result in the product shown in the image above. There doesn't seem to be any Wagner–Meerwein rearrangement either. This left me wondering, what reagent(s) should be used to form the product shown above.

One way to do it would be do first do a hydroboration-oxidation reaction, which leads to the anti-Markovnikov addition of $$\ce{H2O}$$. So you will get an $$\ce{-OH}$$ group instead of $$\ce{-Cl}$$. Then, we can replace the $$\ce{-OH}$$ group with $$\ce{-Cl}$$ by treating it with $$\ce{PCl3}$$ or $$\ce{PCl5}$$.
