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:

Maybe someone should appreciate how hard it is to flash 8a or redpoint 9a and congratulate them on that, or keep snide comments to themselves ? Climbing is a broad church and many people enjoy many facets of it in different ways. Get out there and make a vid of yourself doing your ground up style that you love but other people may not understand or appreciate in the way that you do. I wouldn't make a negative comment about that though. It was only a couple of weeks ago that Jordan Buys was getting grief for a new E7 and E8. Maybe you missed that or maybe you just like to post negative comments. Before i forget, well done Ryan and Mina.
