Kim Jain has had a great week in Yangshuo, China, making quick of several hard routes.

...I think that it was really successful trip, as I could finish three 5.14 routes 'Climb china, 8c, flash, 'Spicy noodle, 8c+, 2nd go, and 'French gangster', 8b+, 3rd go during just one week.

"Successful" is perhaps an understatement as this was Jain's lifetime best for both flash and redpoint, but considering how little work she needed, it's not entirely unthinkable she could climb quite a bit harder if she focused more on rock.
