Crossing the gap.
These wider-than-average monkey bars require complete investment in momentum – if you stop moving, you’re toast.
Scaling the wall.
The trick to getting over these walls is to run up as far as possible without grabbing the chain, then snagging it just as you begin to lose momentum. Every moment the biceps aren’t tensed means more juice for the next obstacle.
When it comes to the spider-wall, success is in the legs. Use the arms as a guide for each hop, but dig in with the toes to reduce upper-body fatigue.
Over the line.
Going prone is the only way to get past a tight node where multiple slack-lines meet. It’s important not to hesitate and just keep pulling, or you’ll lose your balance and flip.
Parallel slack lines can leave burns on the insides of your thighs, but getting burned beats falling into the gap.
Air time is rest time. A few breaths during a quick fall never felt so good.
