Pirmin Bertle repeats Jungle Speed 9A VIDEO

German climber Pirmin Bertle sent on March 23  "Jungle speed", a 9a route of Daniel Jung (11March 2010) in  "La capella" sector at Siurana, just on the right of the 9b recently done by Adam Ondra, "La capella".
For Pirmin the 4th 9a in 12 months! In September he did Torture Physique 2.0 in Gatlösen (CH) and in August Cabane au Canada of Lionel Clerc.
Here his report  "One of the last not that warm days in Catalunya this springtime and in a magnificent shape "Jungle speed" found me irresistible. First go of the day. A real walk through. Furthermore my 4th 9a during the last 12 months and together with "Leche caliente" (8c) and "Chocolate caliente" (8c+) my 3rd hard route on this trip.

Though you need a rope for "Jungle speed", one doesn’t need any endurance or similar. Two times fb7c+ in the first 5 moves and an 8a+ to finish, that’s it. But have the waterfall in mind that occurs after heavy rain. Even there’s just a 7c to redpoint to the top, it will for sure impede you from clipping the anker. So it happened to me in the 10th try. So I finally sent it in the 12th one. Happy an relieved… 🙂
