haha wow i was just working on my wall runs today!! what you gota do is practice running up to them from a short distance so that way you don't have a chance to slow down since you're speeding up to get to the wall. then you gota lift your leg up as high as you can and absorb your momentum. then you transfer that forward momentem into upward. hopefully that will help...its kinda hard to explain this online without showing you but hopefully it helped none the less.

Im somewhat in the same boat as you. But, after meeting up with a few others,  I was told how to run up a wall better. What was suggested was to run up, take that first step, and right after planting it, the left ( or right) foot, arms, body, and hands shold go up at the same time. Its not two  or three different movements as in step, step, grab.. but step and grab.

Also try to throw your arms up hard. It will give you some more height.

well i say right before you get to the wall about 3 feet away just do a speed burst lift you leg up, push upward and have you upperbody close to the wall then push up with the other leg and lean forward...........hopefully that worked..........its not very detailed but hey it might get the job done!

Yeah, wallruns and any type of tech you try to combine it with really require a certain "explosion" of energy on your part.

its really easy just start like a wallrun but instead of trying to vault up it you climb
