theres not much to correct there. just move the steps back alittle. maybe widen your grip alittle bit on the pole also. very good form, not much to fix, just work on getting on bigger poles. were you also in a foot when you were jumping on your 14'135? if so, fix that and you got it.

The popsicle sticks get scuffed up or even break rather than your pole getting banged up at the bottom.
