James Taylor on his new super-route at Porth Saint. Prisoners Of The Sun E10 7a.. looks like I might leap up the belaying leaderboard with this one! 😬 The pic shows James in the no-fall zone having just completed a burly British 7a sequence

Sounds amazing news. Fuck insta, and Mick's FB timeline isn't public so i can't find it.

Cool looking piece of rock. Should have called it Fire and Rain, or a wealth of other back catalogue choices.

That's a pretty sweet looking piece of climbing. That lower wall sounds pretty hard core too, must have been full on having to get re-psyched for the lead after dropping the top.

Bumped into James today. The wall sounds amazing. 40m wide and continuously overhanging by about 20 degrees. Twid put up a couple of routes in the 90ís and itís been ignored till recently when Caff took a look. At least one of Twids routes has had the pegs replaced and seen a few ascents. Apparently itís located just on from Electric Blue.

Ah ha! Insta has stopped being a cockend so I can look again. It's a bit further north from EB I think, in a separate big open bay.
