Our first WI5. Graeme lead P1 and P4, whereas I lead P2 (15-metres vertical cigar; crux) and P3. I successfully took a lot of rests in P2 by bridging, so it was not as sustained or hard as it first appeared. I guess lots of preceding traffics have made this route slightly easier. P1 and P3 are easier in comparison, but are still interesting. A good route!
