Jung climbs Jungle speed, 9a

Daniel Jung has made the FA of a route he calls Jungle speed, in the La Capella- sector at Siurana. Daniel says he didn’t think the project looked that hard, maybe 8b+, but that it took a long time for him to solve the single moves, which turned out to be the hardest he has done on a route: “The line is short, not more than 12m. The hardest is to link two hard boulders in a raw or like two cruxes of an 8c+ route.. The most powerful move is a crazy shoulder move, the second a litle jump in a two finger pocket. The first hard move worked well, but catching the pooket took me a lot of time… There are only very small footsteps and its very hard to coordinate the jump..”.

About the grade, he thinks that it weighs in around the 9a mark.
