British climber Ryan Pasquil is currently on a climbing trip to Spain, and it is reported on the DMM Website that he has quickly climbed Jungle Speed (9a) at Siurana.

Also reported is an 8a flash from Mina Leslie-Wujastyk:

"At the same time across the valley on Siuranella Centre Mina Leslie-Wujastyk was flashing her first 8a, Memorias de una Sepia, to join a select few British female climbers to have flashed a route at this grade."

To check out the hard moves involved in short 9as, here's a video of Pirmin Bertle climbing Jungle Speed:
