Title: Wall Climb Height
Post by: JimmyD-TPK on July 04, 2009, 06:02:37 PM
(Not in a Gym, this has to be out under the sun)  Post your best hight on a wall climb you have gotten so far in your training.
state - How long you have been doing parkour, your Personal best wall climb hight,
and how tall you are

if you can :  say what kind of footware you had on at the time,  how the texture of the wall was (sence that can vary)

* good =  9 ft  :)
* Great = 10 - 11ft  :D
* Awesome = 12-14ft  ;D
* ..WOW!   = 15Ft and up  :o 8)

...
ill start it off,  13.5 ft    It was at St. Jeans E school, Temecula, Sol Ca .  i had a pair of K-swis Ariakes on   the wall was smooth concreet, i have been doing parkour for 6 years.  i am 6ft 1in tall

I know i've gotten some damn high walls, but I can't accurately say how high they were. I'm gonna start putting a tape measure in my pk bag so I can measure walls :P

Then when security comes along I can say i'm checking for foundation quality to make sure the buildings won't fall over ;D

Edit:

6'3"
Regular Nikes
11'5" wall (it was easy :D)

I've been practicing hard and so far my wallrun falls just short of 14 ft.

The wall i'm using as practice slopes from 14 feet to about 15, but i've yet to measure the end of it.

Wall type was brick, using five tens freerunners :)

Next practice sess I'll kill it. For sure ;)
