The best route of its grade at the crag? Yangshuo? Certainly a contender, White Devil boasts great, super-fun climbing from bottom to top. Ramps up to speed early with a tough, delicate crux near the bottom, climbs to a tricky few moves at mid-way, then a pumpy ride to a super satisfying (and a bit sharp) thank-god jug. The finish is a fun final 10m of 11b-ish jug hauling -- hard enough to fall off of and spoil a redpoint or onsight if you haven't saved quite enough.
On the main face of White Mountain, just about right up the center. Its just left of Yangshuo Hotel and right of Gang of Four. Climbs up the starting overhang through a few tricky moves - a spot is a good idea here.
Bolts to a 2 bolt fixed anchor.
