Pirmin Bertle has made the 3rd ascent of Daniel Jung's Jungle speed, 9a, in the La Capella sector at Siurana.

The meat of the route is the start where you have to solve two 7C+ boulder sequences in order to gain access to the rest of the route, which would weigh in around 8a+ or so in its own right.

This was Pirmin's 4th 9a in the last 12 months.

Here's an interview I made with him last year, and here's a video:
