A new 35 meter 5.14 has been established at White Mountain in Yangshuo China.  Liu Yong Bond, AKA Abond, has completed the first ascent of Horse Arrives Successfully (5.14a), an extension of Big Sun (5.11b).  Abond bolted the route last month and got the send on the 27th of June after seven tries.  Abond will be taking a trip to Qingdao, Guizhou, and Dao Cheng to develop the bouldering and break some hearts.
