P2&3 together. Not much decent climbing for all the faff. We did discover that a 50m ab rope fixed for the descent and hooked round a nearby flake in the platform will allow you to ab down and step across the crevasse. More attractive an option than jumping!

As Ed said, the worthwhile climbing is very short lived.

Lead pitch 1. Did the jump badly this time and broke my heel. Just managed to lead pitch 1, second the top pitch and hobble back to the count house. I recommend wearing tennies for the jump and not landing on your heel!

Led P1 and grotty top pitch, took all day to locate, access and climb, dehydrated and sun stroked at top, nails crux, how many 5c cranks do you need to make for it to be 6a? All v memorable

Felmar got Mat, I couldn't stop laughing until it tried to do the same to me. E3 variation.

Fab. Jack led the E3 variant, perfect corner. In situ seagull on the belay ledge so we took a haniging belay five feet below and placated it with some bread!

2nded hard pitch, fell off 3 times. Jump to the starting ledge is scary but very do-able (with a rope)

Felix did the E3 6a version, it was drier.
Bern - 2nd - Sep/07 with Felix
abbed in to the ledge, glad we didnt make the jump. first pitch poorly protected 4c/5a good climbing though. got to the belay ledge to find a young seagull, couldnt leave the ledge so carried on while being under constant attack from the parents, steve came up to the ledge and the seagull chick jumped to a watery death, we came under abuse from some climbers with megaphones (soft sods). then i found the moves off the belay ledge desparate as it was raining and i couldnt be arsed, had to make the crux 3 times as well to strip all the gear.
