Incident

Fairly experienced boulderer falling from the top of the problem (~3m). The dynamic move caused me to miss the mats and land feet first on the surrounding ground. Luckily this was soft enough to not incur any serious injuries but the resulting sprain has not disappeared after more than a month.
