I needed reminding that falling off a 2 will hurt as much as falling off a 6. a close call!

Teaching myself to lead roped solo. All a bit out of control. Not a great climbing experience!

good for beginers to lead. (barely a lead, more a high ball problem)

Short and sweet - a bit harder than F2 though; it would have presented an interesting V0 boulder problem
