Daniel Jung has made the first repeat of Nico Favresse's 2013 crack test piece Recovery drink, a steep crack on the Profilveggen at Jøssingfjord in the southern most part of Norway.
Several crack specialists, including Pete Whittaker and Tom Randall, have worked hard for this coveted second ascent lately, and in the end Daniel got there first.
He writes on IG:
The Recovery Drink is DONE!! What a beautiful line, what a nice challenge! I'm extremely happy to have sent it finally on my very last day.
Daniel has been in Norway for a month and has been very close to succeeding for quite a while, falling several times on the final crux move or doing the route with one hang, sometimes twice a day.
Regarding the difficulty... As far as I know, Nico called it 5.14+, which I guess should imply at least 8c. It will be interesting to hear what Mr Jung says.
