Is there a knack as to where to make the leap of faith from the platform onto the pipe. I either go flying back to Relto or land on a smaller pipe... :(

You don't need to jump to the pipe, just walk off the edge on to it! It works best for me in 1st person to gauge where I'm going, just look straight down and you should be fine.

[spoiler]As Rils wrote, there's no need to jump. You can simply drop to the pipe.

There is another way to get to the Bahro door: walk back to the end of the corridor from which you entered this part of Kadish Tolesa. From here you can jump to the ledge; this is best done in first person, looking down so that you don't fall off the edge and can aim for the ledge.[/spoiler]

Yup, that's a good point. In fact, that's how I did it for the longest time - just run and jump off the edge of the walkway where you first enter the vault area. It wasn't until quite some time later I learned you could actually walk the pipe down there... :oops:

A bit easier on the legs, no? Though that drop in Gahreesen is still a killer. Maybe the DRC will put in a walkway for us? :)

[spoiler]Well, I have to say that this is the first time that I have heard of reaching the Bahro door by walking down the pipes! (I assume you mean the supports for the vault).

I've alwaysd just jumped off at the end of the corridor.[/spoiler]

[spoiler]I never jumped from by the door until I found out a couple of months ago that it was possible. I jump onto the pipe from just by the opener puzzle.[/spoiler]

In 3rd person view you can turn around and walk backwards, seeing quite clearly where you will land.

I always walked the pipes, with my heart pounding out of my chest. I only learned of the ledge jump in Until Uru, but doing the ages with my buddies. Multi-player ages is the coolest thing about this game.

If you're really daring, you can jump onto other pipes too! Quite fun.

Fascinating how different people see different solutions to same problem :) I've always been a "pipe man" - the thought of jumping never occurred to me 'til I read this.

[spoiler]Which reminds me that in Eder Kemo, I used to always get the Relto page from ledge by wedging myself between the small "puffing" plant and the face of the ledge. A well timed jump got a boost from the plant as it puffed and you could scramble up. Sometimes this took several tries. Then someone said "Nah, you jump from here onto that rock then over onto the ledge"... "REALLY??? :shock: :oops: "[/spoiler]

LOL!
[spoiler]I used to jump from the wall onto the standing stone, or walk up the standing stone, then jump to the ledge. I only discovered your "regular" method today by accident![/spoiler]

I just love all the different solutions! It never occured to me to jump the ledge.....I first saw the pipe and naturally assumed I should go that way so I did even though my heart was in my throat the whole time I inched my way across the void! Just goes to show there are more than just one way to solve a puzzle!

Back in the days of playing Uru:CC on my computer, I had problems getting to that page. I was told there was a rumor of doing the way that Mac_Fife showed. I tried unsuccessfully and never knew it had ever been done. Way to go! But then, this is now off-topic.
