How to make the wall at night: 12 steps (with pictures)

Walling is fun, exciting, and a skill that can come in handy. For some, this is as useful and sometimes even more important than learning Parkour. Whether you want to kick out the wall for a party, stargazing, or just for the act itself, there are good and bad ways to do it. Of course, hitting the wall usually involves wanting to avoid getting caught. Therefore, you must learn to wall out at night without realizing that you are gone.


Part 1 of 4: Prepare

Sneak Out of Your House at Night Step 1

Step 1. Plan your meeting point

You will need to determine where you will meet your friends before knocking out (such as your little friend, a group of acquaintances, etc.). Keep this group small so you don't get noticed.

Step 2. Plan your reunion

You need to know how you are going to get out of your house, where you are going to meet your friends and how long it will take you (walk during the day, when no one is watching you). Do not write this information down on a piece of paper, as it may serve as proof for your parents. Keep the following information in mind.

  • The fences, grounds, lights and hiding places you will come across on your way.
  • The blind spots of your neighbors' windows.
  • Creaky floors or creaky doors and windows.
  • Natural elements like the weather and the moon phase.
  • The time you need to leave.
  • The method you are going to use to leave your home (which should be as discreet as possible).
  • Also remember dogs that may bark and avoid all other animals.
  • The path you need to take to reach your friends.
  • The route you will take to get home.
  • Your method of entering your house.
  • The main roads you should avoid.
  • An estimate of the duration of your trip.
  • Your explanations, your plans B and the things you need, etc.

Step 3. Prepare yourself physically and mentally

Eat 2 hours before you leave and drink an hour before you leave. Dress 15 minutes before, but not earlier, as you may be discovered by your parents. Also use an energy gel 15 minutes before your departure (they are usually gooey and contain caffeine as well as complex sugars). Pack all the things you will need, but make sure you aren't overloaded. Remember you just need to knock it out, so don't overdo it.

Stretch before you hit the wall. At night, it will be much easier to hear if your limbs or joints are cracking. Stretching before you go out is a great way to make sure you don't make noise while moving

Step 4. Prepare an excuse

If your parents wake up in the night, for example, you can tell them that you need a drink of water. If they see you coming home after going out, you can explain to them that you were just staring at the stars. Make several excuses for every possible situation before you hit the wall. If you've rehearsed your conversation before, your parents are less likely to suspect it is a lie.

Know what can wake your parents up. Some people take a long time to wake up, while others are instantly alert as soon as they open their eyes. Sometimes you'll have to give up the idea of ​​wallowing and quickly run upstairs to your bedroom before your parents have time to figure out what they might have been hearing. If your parents have very keen hearing, it is best if you get back to your room quickly, but behave normally if they have seen you. Remember to think of a good excuse

Sneak Out of Your House at Night Step 5

Step 1. Wear appropriate colors

  • Black: This is a color that is rarely found in nature and is actually a bad choice. It will only be useful for asphalt or if you are in a parking lot.
  • Slate gray: it is a very good color for concrete and urban environments.
  • Navy or dark blue: this color blends in well with the night and allows you to camouflage yourself in various environments.
  • Olive or military green: perfect for green, dense and thin foliage. If you live in the suburbs, you might hide in the bushes or in the grass.
  • Persimmon: ideal for dead leaves or if you live in a desert area.
  • White: perfect for snow, preferably with a few touches of black or gray.
  • Brown: Go for this color if you live in an earthy environment without green plants.

Sneak Out of Your House at Night Step 6

Step 1. Get out of your house quickly

Your house is unique, so there are some details that you need to think about before you make the wall. Make sure you can walk quietly and avoid squeaky floors. Exit through the window or door furthest from your parents' room. Try not to bump into furniture as you can injure yourself and make noise. Take whatever you may need with you, depending on where you are going (eg money, flashlight, Swiss Army knife, etc.).

Place a screwdriver or a small knife on your window or door so that it does not close and you find yourself locked out. Take a key to your front door to be prepared for any eventuality. If your bedroom is upstairs, you can use a ladder. Place a soft toy under your duvet to make it look like you're always sleeping in your bed. Leave your door as you normally would so you don't catch your parents' attention (and don't lock it). If your parents realize that you are gone, leave a note to reassure them that you have something to call them and that they should not call the police

Step 2. Be silent to exit

Here is what you need to think about to make the wall.

  • As you go down the stairs (especially if they squeak), stay close to the wall. This is where the steps are most stable. You can also do this in the middle of the day to determine which steps are squeaky or not.
  • If necessary, place your hands against the wall to transfer your weight to your arms. This will make your legs lighter and minimize the risk of squeaking steps.
  • Turn the handle very gently. Also be aware of the noise your door will make when you open it. Some squeaky doors can be opened silently with a quick move, while others will have to be opened slowly. Know your surroundings.

Step 3. Keep a watch with you

You must always know the time, as well as the duration of your trips. It is best to be home an hour before the time your parents normally wake up.

Step 4. Exit silently

Take the time to breathe the fresh night air, enjoy the sound of locusts and the air traffic in the distance. Observe the moon and the clouds in front of the stars. This will give you a better state of mind and learn to be as discreet as a ninja who adapts well to his natural environment. If you are particularly nervous, stay in your garden and enjoy the quiet of the night. This will allow you to calm down before you leave your home.

Step 5. Start moving

Once you're on your backyard lawn, it's time to get away from it all. Stoop down, stay silent and alert. Look behind you and walk quietly.

Part 4 of 4: Go home

Sneak Out of Your House at Night Step 11

Step 1. Go inside as you left

Keep in mind that it is easier to get spotted when you come in rather than when you hit the wall. Don't be too sure of yourself, thinking you've already pulled it off. Stay silent, take off your clothes and mess up your hair. Go have a drink of water in the kitchen so that you have a ready excuse if your parents find out about you. Close the door through which you entered so that your parents do not suspect anything.

Step 2. Keep caffeine in your bedroom

Your parents may be suspicious of something if you stay in bed until midday (unless it's a habit for you) or if you seem unusually tired. Drink an energy drink or caffeinated soda to wake you up after your sleepless night.


  • Carry some cash with you in case you need to call home or for a snack.
  • If you have to go into hiding for any reason, remember that people rarely look down or into the air. You can also be seen because of certain shapes, your figure, the shade you hide in or the color you wear. Eliminate all of these risks by wearing appropriate attire, staying in the shade, and moving with care.
  • Human 2D theory states that humans are 2D creatures and we look for each other at the level we are at (i.e. ground level). So if someone is looking for you, hide on a roof or in a ditch so that you are not on the same level as them. But don't hide in the trees. If you are seen there, you will have nowhere to go and you risk a long fall if you plan to jump. You can also throw a rock or object to create a diversion (don't crack your joints, as this may draw attention to yourself).

    • If you are hiding on a roof, don't choose the roof of a lighted house, stay on the ground and make sure you have an emergency exit. Some roofs are steeper and sloping than others. Stay away from skylights and don't stand in the moonlight projected onto a skylight.
    • If you are hiding in a ditch or a hole, stay there until your pursuer is gone. Don't take a look to see if it's still there. If you are in a densely populated area, you may need a cover to camouflage yourself, such as leaves or something the same color as the ground. But a passer-by might run into you.
  • If your parents come to check that you are still in your room because you have already made the wall, place some pillows, soft toys or another blanket in your bed. If they take a closer look, use doll hair the same color as yours.
  • You can wallow all year round as long as you style your outfit. Remember that because you will be running and moving around, you may be sweating and having a dry mouth for the first 10 minutes. But a bare arm will be easier to spot. If you rest for more than 5 minutes, you may catch a cold.
  • If you're a teenager and your bedroom is in the basement, go through the window furthest from your parents' bedroom. If you sleep upstairs, you may take too long to open the window and closing it can make a lot of noise. If you have to go out the window, gently put down a crate or stool to get to its level. If you have a wooden palisade or a smooth brick wall, ask a trusted friend to help you get out and return home.
  • Take a change of outfit, preferably casual and lighter in color (wide pants and a polo shirt for example). If you work (or have worked) at a company that stays open late at night and you've kept your uniform on, take it (although your company can be verified with your company to see if your story is true). You can also take a work jacket and a helmet (if you are old enough). Just try to blend in with your surroundings.
  • Don't touch anything that isn't necessary and act like you're in the daytime and just going out for a walk.
  • Try asking your parents if you can go out with friends during the week. They can accept if you are old enough. If they refuse, wait for a night when your parents are not feeling well or going to bed earlier after a long day at work. They're less likely to get up in the middle of the night and realize you've broken down.
  • Wear street clothes to look more casual if needed. A dark green or navy blue sweatshirt, cap and pants of the same color will be perfect if you go out at night without permission. Black jeans can also be a great idea, but they don't blend in with the natural color of the night and will make you look like a thief due to the stereotypes conveyed by the movies.


  • Do not wear a camouflage pattern unless it is a shirt or t-shirt that you would normally wear. If you wear an extravagant outfit, your alibis won't look believable, and the chances of you being discovered won't be completely eliminated.
  • Be careful when walking on a busy street. Avoid roads as much as possible and be prepared to hide or dive to the ground when you hear a car or the footsteps of a walker. Avoid streetlights and don't wear fluorescent or overly brightly colored clothing.
  • Don't walk on unfamiliar streets because you won't know where to hide or your surroundings. You will be noticed more easily, but if you stay in your neighborhood, your neighbors can also recognize you.
  • If you live in an apartment, it's common for people to go out at night and all you need is to know the fastest route to escape.
  • The police portend the worst of your actions and will use force and weapons if you give them a reason to do so. If you get caught in the act, don't move, put your hands up and say "I didn't mean to hurt, officer." Most criminals do not allow themselves to be called out without offering resistance, so this attitude will help you avoid misunderstandings.
  • Try not to make noise, as your neighbors may call the police. A rustling in the bushes can be caused by an animal or by the wind, but if you are louder they can be wary and look out their windows. However, they will rarely call the police if they just hear someone walking past their house.
  • If the police arrive, stop and tell them the truth. You can also take the risk of climbing trees (an attitude rarely adopted by criminals) if you are past your curfew and want to prevent your parents from knowing that you have been knocked out at all costs. Do it as a last resort and only if necessary. They were probably called by a suspicious neighbor and assuming you don't have a curfew, you theoretically haven't done anything wrong other than just hiding. You're just looking for the adrenaline rush of hitting the wall. You can also act as if you are just walking on the street. But, if they know you shouldn't be outside, you'll have less of a problem not lying to them.
  • Do not use MP3 or iPod. If you listen to music, you will be less alert and aware of your surroundings. And if you can't listen to it quietly or concentrate on the music you love, is it really necessary to use your MP3?
  • Don't go out after your curfew if you are under the age to do so. If the latter starts at 11:00 p.m. and your parents see you outside at 10:50 p.m., you haven't done anything wrong. You can even go out right after your curfew ends, but it's not a nighttime operation if the sun is up.
  • If you've been seen by neighbors, follow these tips.

    • You must be content to run until your pursuers are discouraged. Avoid the roads and change streets so that you cannot be chased by car.Do not go home immediately, because then they will know where you live.
    • Use an alibi, like, "My dog ​​ran away today and I couldn't sleep so I turned his run away into a game where I try to find him by making sure no one sees us. Prepare your answers to questions you may be asked (like your dog's name, the time he ran away) so that no one can tell that you are lying. Whether it's a young adult or a teenager, you can just tell him the truth and hope he understands your situation and not call the police. As you walk away, make sure he's not pulling out his phone.
  • It is not illegal to go out at night. Only paranoid or anxious neighbors will worry about seeing you on the street at 2 a.m.
