when you jump how do you hold on without slipping?
Personally I would suggest the opposite, as getting your feet to make contact with the wall first is much more important for safety reasonings. Not only does it absorb a lot of the impact into the wall, it also slows down your upper bodies velocity, allowing your hands to have more time to find a sweet spot on top. Having your feet placed first gives you more height to reach further on top of the wall. Once you have that, you can get a better grip and not slip with either you hands or feet!

I'm with Oliver on this one. whenever you do a cat leap, you want to make sure you place your feet on the obstacle first and immediately after, you grip on the top for some stabilization.
Make sure your feet land high enough on the wall. This will prevent you from slipping.
It depends if the wall is not a member, you obviously have more trouble staying there. but when you give the cat leap, fall with both feet at the same time and place nearby knees possible underarm
At first try finding a spot where the wall sticks out for a foot support. Once your used to that try an actual cat leap feet first then grip your hands on the top.
make sure you're hands have a firm grip on the top before your feet make contact and to land the leap on the balls of your feet
no problem man
find a the most grippy wall u can find
you have to really grip onto to the wall with your feet and hands
Dane a cat leap is like a precision jump to the wall, u land with feet first
have your feet hit the wall first to absorb the impact, then once your hands are on make your arms do the dirty work of holding your weight while just using your feet for stability. the most important thing though, is to hit with FEET FIRST or else your face will slam into the wall
just use your feet for support and grip with your hands it works better when there's a little ledge to hang on to when you are doing the cat leap
land on your feet first your momentum will help you stay on the wall
Try to work on your grip strength too. That will help with even the most slippery surfaces.
I'm pretty sure you need grippy shoes and you need to get used to the wall
Land with your feet first and keep them close to your hands. That keeps them from slipping.
Ugh I wear gloves so I dont slip
Grab on a bit more strongly and use your legs more.
Adding to Oliver's, I would suggest having gripping shoes, they always help me when I'm doing parkour
Use your thumb on the wall with your fingers griping the top while your hand is sharing between by scrunching your hand
Place your feet on the object first and immediately grab the top to stay on without slipping.
Have a good grip
The angle in which you land should help, land on a wall in the squat position, the higher your legs the less you lll slip
Make sure your feet hit first and make sure they aren't to low when they hit otherwise they will slip. Also work on grip strength.
Upper body strenght
Use upper body strength and just keep yourself on there until you find time to swing one arm up
make sure you land with your feet first and then grab the top
Maybe try some better shoes
Make sure you keep your feet hitting the walls first for safety reasons
One thing these guys are forgetting is make sure, that once your in the cat position on the wall. Your feet are waist height. This will give you the best traction for your feet.
Make sure you land on the wall with your feet first then grab the ledge and drop your butt.
It just depends on the surface and the type of shoes you wear
You have to jump in a pike position with your knees slightly bent and you have to jump outward fast so you hit your landing kind of hard also you may need new shoes
Try putting your feet higher on the wall and use your arms to support your body
You lean back when you hit the wall so there is more of your weight being put on your feet giving them more traction
You may find it easier if you land on the wall with slightly staggered feet. This softens the impact even more as it creates a wider vertical surface area.
Feet first so you can grab the top. After you grab if it’s really slippery your feet can slide so it’s important to get your hands high and a strong grip
