After one practice on a toprope. First E2 though didn't feel hard. Only one move worth worrying about really but would obviously be right at the top

My first extreme lead. Very bold, but all flowed quite smoothly and didn't feel too hard for the grade. Nick belayed with some strange item from his collection of Red Army surplus equipment - which looked like it was designed more for abseiling out of attack helicopters - so didn't really matter that there's no gear! A month after leading my first VS.
