Italian, Jacopo Larcher continius his good form from the Red River Gorge a while back and repeats Jungle speed, 9a, at Siurana.
Jungle speed was put up in 2010 by the German climber Daniel Jung. The very short route, only 12 meters, can be found in the La Capella sector, and as if that not bouldery enough, the main difficulties are concentrated to the very first moves, where one has to negotiate two 7C+ cruxes to reach the "easy" 8a+-ish terrain above.
Jacopo's ascent was the fourth after Jung, Pirmin Bertle and Sasha Gerzha.
