Cool, I'll have to give it a try.  I always need to work on my kongs, though my main problem seems to be getting the distance after them.  Whenever I kong of monkey anything I seem to land right on the other side of it, any tips on this aspect?

There's a nice sloped wall . . . well actually the ground slopes which in turn increases the walls height . . . at the university we jammed at this past weekend that would be excellent for working on this technique.

I'm 6'3" and can kong a wall/rain/whatever just shy of chest height as of now.  But I still need to pop stuff as tall as me . . . getting a kong over something at head height is a worthy goal I have now added ;)

getting distance out of a kong will probably be another drill so I won't address that issue here.

thats not on wall runs in general, but it is very helpful for wall runs. topping out is an important part of that
