This video from Louder than 11 really speaks for itself. Amazing landscape and climbing footage from Yangshuo, China, featuring an impressive first female ascent of China climb, 8c, by Paige Claassen.

She just comes across as young, ill-informed and naive (IMO a complete idiot), Yangshuo is not as she described at all (maybe other parts of China are), a few minutes on Google would have shown otherwise and prevented...
