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 and relieved… 🙂
