At this point the walls of the rift have a lot of sharp flakes. So difficult to get a good hang without it going into the water. -> try from the "Far Side" ???

When detackling, Mark managed to fall down a hole injuring his hand. First aid kit came out and we bandaged it up. Slow struggle out. Prussiking with one hand is harder than you might think.
