"Standing on Ceres": with 3% gravity

Standing on Ceres: Closest Dwarf Planet to Earth”, by Drexler Astral.

Gravity would be only 3% of Earth’s.  The dwarf planet is 584 miles in diameter, so the horizon is very near.  There are salt flats, and a 12000 foot mountain of salt, almost Biblical.
It would seem to take very little effort to function there, until your bones got weaker.
