They are not as bad, imagine doing a very high clapping push up, but instead of clapping you place your hands on the wall.

At least once a week. Most times I do the mini gauntlet about 2 to 3 times a week. The mini gauntlet consist in the same but it is a smaller area and I just run it back and forth doing different exercises each time i.e Handicap ramp, staircase etc.

You get results very very quick, and it is also great for stamina since there is not rest between exercises you just gotta make sure you balance it out between lower and upper body to avoid over working the same muscle too many times in a row.

You dont need to have something awesome, one wall can be used 1000 ways. You just gotta improve your vision.

I bet you got at least a shooping center near by also, go to the back of it and look at it. I bet with time once you get the vision you just only see a PK urban gym in there.

I can do a clapping pushup, its the stall against the wall thats the hard part for me

Well make sure you aren't actually stalling. You're not supposed to old it, or at least not for very long. Its just a quick up down. In fact I don't know how possible it is to old it, because your feet slip back.

You actually do put your weight on your hands in order to push back down. There is another way to do it where you also kinda do a push up against the wall. Just find a way not slip.

You can also just do it on a ledge so you can grab and not fall down, on the wall it is funner but more difficult.

You can hold it; it's just a very intense ab workout which, if you aren't ready for, can hurt your back if you don't use good form (i.e. dont arch your back, keep tight).

You are training like the European traceurs. This reminds me of what we did with PK Generations in New York. They had us doing this stuff from morning until late at night. From what I have gathered in my contact with those guys, this is how we should be training most of the time. For the OSUPK crowd, we do conditioning like this most days of the week now, with just enough technique training thrown in once in a while to keep everyone from quitting the club. LOL.

Love this vid.  Some great stuff in there, a lot of which we run here in Ontario, as well, but a LOT of nice specific locations that I don't think you could find anywhere else.

Its cause he was doing it on a small wall. I'm talking about doing it on a wall like a house. So instead of grabbing the top of the wall, your pushing it and engaging your core to keep yourself up. Hard to explain, but hopefully you get the concept. And in those, you can stall (if your a beast) but its very hard, and as Andy (I think aclimbatize is Andy) said, not good for you unless you have very good form.
