Rain + short wall + being 6'3 = fails
Power, balance, freedom.

So you could try playing with trajectory... go straighter into it, not as high. To do this, you'll have to go faster and takeoff earlier.


Also, whenever I do cat grabs, I split my feet and lead as much as I can with them to absorb the impact better. Could help you a lot with your feet slipping less if you get it right.


Don't try doing both of these at once... getting your feet in front of you fast enough from a kong at high speed takes some technique to get used to.
Water conforms to the shape of it's surroundings. Do not be water. Shape your own life.

I bet you could Kong and land a precision or crane on that wall. (That is, if you think its safe.)
I eat a lot of food.

Alec this is actually a pretty common problem for me. I hit the wall and just let me legs fall instead of engaging my core and keeping them up. But I'll try the trajectory thing, I'm surprised I didnt think of it myself. I honestly think the rain was the only thing stopping me from getting it lol. Might be an excuse but I really think it played a factor.

Grayson I've already planned to try the kong pre but I want to get this first :P

Yeah, your legs and body in general are going to need more forward trajectory, rather than falling into it.

I had the same problem with this level to level cat leap, right here in this old video (the first 2 scenes, 1 edited and 1 a continuous shot): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0KEarrg-Qw

Yea I see what I'm doing wrong :P I also just realized that the wall I'm trying to mount is lower than the one I'm konging from...

You'll get that with a little time and practice =)
I like Tricking and Free Running, i don't think i actually do parkour, because i do it for fun and self expression, which would change the term to free running.
