Xtreme-Jumps Movies

Hello everyone,

Today I’d like to present you a movie I made together with Country: Poland Okazys Mapper CS 1.6 Recordholder LJ Recordholder.
This movie is the result of Country: Poland Okazys Mapper CS 1.6 Recordholder LJ Recordholder pushing the limits of steepslides beyond what I thought was possible, and plenty of hours spent working on this by both of us. What you see are the longest recorded distances in this discipline so far. The name "SLABS" is taken from the climbing terminology, meaning a steep rock (angled similarly to steepslides), usually with very tiny and almost non existent holds, where every mistake results in slipping off and falling down. This requires a lot of precision, same as getting the perfect angles on the steep ramps in order to travel the longest distance possible.

The movie displays what is happening in the form of numbers shown up on the screen, which was the original idea for this project. Later it became a very time consuming project where I built a completely new environment including new materials. I hope you have a great time watching!


Country: Poland Okazys Mapper CS 1.6 Recordholder LJ Recordholder:
My obsession with steepslides has begun when I saw Country: Brazil Gorbachev_x Mapper Streamer's video of him landing 1900 steepslide with lj pre. I have already landed 1850 at the time and I liked the idea of being a second ever person to do something so I made a couple of maps for myself and started grinding. In a span of 2 days I landed every steep going from 1875 to 1925 in 5 units increments. Last of which took me more than 300 minutes. Meanwhile I was trying to push my time on kz-endo_slide_svn_steep_x to the limits just like with the steep distance. With each new personal best I would spam my Steam friends, including Country: Czech Republic blackelf Moviemaker. After my 6:19 run he messaged me that he would make a movie for me if I get a sub 4 minutes run. We both took it as a joke because it was really outlandish and not thought to be possible for me. Eventually, it happened after 15+ sub 5 minutes runs, 3:30, more than 2x quicker than the previous wr holder, Country: Brazil Gorbachev_x Mapper Streamer. Student surpassed his idol, pretty cool, isn't it? I didn't really think that steeps would appeal to anyone but Country: Czech Republic blackelf Moviemaker persuaded me so I tried my best with showing what is possible with this technique. A couple of times I had a 400 minutes uptime on my lan grinding with no major breaks. 1950 is the best of all three, with a frame perfect duck at the end. 2020 is solid, I would stop earlier but 2020 in 2020 is just dank. 2075? The easiest one to improve, it is actually really hard to get on a steep correctly with ladderbhop and 299 pre for some reasons. Also I almost completely forgot about the 252 "kkz" jump, it either wasn't as hard as I thought or I just got lucky. And these are all insights that I am going to write there, have fun watching.

Steepslides in question are Country: United States SilverNinja Mapper’s steepslides seen in many extreme maps such as kzua_mk_illumina_h. They can be described as slides with a 72.66 degree angle or as slides with a 205:64 height to width ratio.

  • I like how overanalyzed this movie is. It also feels like negative feedback is pretty much gone when it comes to newschool techniques. Good job both
