Abond sends American Gangster 5.14a

Uploaded by dpm

The 5.14a 48m (157ft) route was FAed by a Frenchman who drilled a hand hold on the crag, the only man-made hold in Yangshuo. Chris Sharma later completed it without using that hold at all. Since then, it goes by its nickname French Hooligan. The working of such a long route is a story of sweat, failure and torment while the actual topping out is just an afterthought.
