The ability to scale walls by walking/running. This is a more realistic version of Wallcrawling.

Also Called

  • Freerunning
  • Wall-Running
  • Wall-Walking


The user can scale walls similar to the effects of wall-crawling, however Wall-Running requires the user to build up enough momentum for a limited run on surfaces/walls.


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. But 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.
