WALL CLIMB PREPARATION

Negotiation of the wall is a very important part of achieving the wall scale. Always start with one foot take offs and finish with two foot landings. 
Make sure to place your hands at the top of the wall and drive your body up using your momentum. This challenge will require some upper body strength, balance and stamina.
