The ability to scale walls by walking/running. Variation of Surface Scaling.

Also Called

  • Freerunning
  • Wall-Running
  • Wall-Walking


The user can scale walls by walking or even running on them, provided users build up and maintain enough momentum to fuel their vertical ascension.


In real life, there are those who can partially run up walls, though instead of being able to run up the entirety of the wall, one runs up only a few steps. However, those experienced in parkour (or as it is commonly known and mistaken for, free-running) can run up those few steps and then grab something above them to aid in their climb.



  • Must remain running to keep onto wall.
