Daniel Jung, currently on a non-climbing trip to South Africa, recently 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, showed to him by Toni Arbones, 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 a 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.
