Magnus Midtbø climbing Jungle Speed at Siurana
The video of Norwegian climber Magnus Midtboe on Jungle Speed at Siurana in Spain.
Short and intense, in some respects a boulder problem with a rope. These are often the words used to describe Jungle Speed, the sport climb at Siurana freed in 2010 by Germany’s Daniel Jung and recently repeated by Magnus Midtbø who suggests 8c+ instead of the original 9a. The Norwegian is currently concluding his winter migration to Spain where he has also sent Esclatamasters at Perles (8c+ he feels) and the 9a Fabela pa la enmienda at Santa Linya as well as making a flash ascent of famous Fish Eye 8c at Oliana.
In 2013 Midtbø, with his acent of Così fan tutte at Rodellar, became the fifth person ever to onsight 8c+, after Patxi Usobiaga, Adam Ondra, Ramon Julian Puigblanque and Alexander Megos.
