For Yangshuo, Ton Sai etc. Are there any good deals around?

Try Decathlon? Got a 70 from there for just over 100 Euro last year.

Don't know about for those particular locations, but I recently bought a fully treated 70m Edelrid Falcon 9.4mm and have been very impressed with both its handling and durability. No signs of wear at all despite much more use than my Joker.

I got it from Bananafingers all in for about 150 but I see they're not currently advertising that paricular rope. Maybe you can still pick one up elsewhere eg:

I've no idea if they're a decent merchant, so caveat emptor.

I have an 80m Mammut Infinity - love it, although it doesn't quite as freely as a slightly thinner offcut of Edelrid rope that I got from Dick's Climbing in Bristol. However that does help when working routes.

If I was getting a new rope it would be the Joker Unicore 100m.

Dick's climbing have their own ropes, manufactured by Edelrid, and their 9.8 x 70m is 125 http://www.dicksclimbing.com/collections/rope/products/dick-s-climbing-9-8mm-orange-superdry-climbin...

Get an 80. Then when you knacker the ends you can cut them off and still have at least a 70. Well worth the small extra.
