How do it
The cat leap or arm jump, is a technique where the athlete lands on the vertical side of an obstacle in a hanging and tucked position, with the hands gripping the top edge of the object.
Choose your take off point and, facing the surface you want to reach, perform a standing / running jump towards it.
Swing your arms forward and upwards, also bringing your chest up. This will give to your body extra lift.
Bring your knees forward and extend your legs preparing to touch the landing surface.
Keep your arms in front of you, ready to grip the top edge of the landing object.
Land quietly on the balls of your feet, with feet together, on the vertical surface of your obstacle.
Grab the top edge of the landing object with the palm of your hands.

When pulling yourself up on to the top of the wall use your feet as well for extra strength and grip. (?)

grip the ledge at the top with 4 fingers but not your thumbs and when your feet hit make sure the ends on your toes hit first. ?
