Beginner trad seconder (Just finished the Peak Climbing Becoming independent course) looking to get more seconding experience on some easier routes (Up to SEV/HS).

Very happy to just practice top ropes and belay rigging to build confidence, so if there are any other beginners (or experienced climbers who fancy some easier route mileage) looking to get as much experience before the winter let me know.
