Markus Jung survives A Muerte

Yesterday, Markus Jung repeated A Muerte at Siurana, 8c+/9a, a route that's becoming a hard core classic. After the FA, Richard described the route: "The route I climbed is about 20 metres long. It starts with a nasty one finger pocket, on a wall that overhangs about 25 degrees. You climb 10 long moves on pockets up to a bulge (so far about French 8b or 8b+) then straight into a very, very long move to the side from a slopey, shit 2 finger pocket. This leads into another 2 finger pocket which then joins with an existing French 8c called El membre, which avoided all the hard climbing of the project by starting more to the left and traversing in."
