Mod note: I'll allow the run this time as a one-time occurrence. In context of the runner bringing the lost footage to attention immediately before submitting the run, and after discussing on Discord with other mods.

Payman wrote:The first section wasn't the best because of the ending where I messed up the purple lum rope and collision was against me, the second section was good with Rock and Lava door clip though I got a little disoriented with the camera's angle after the clip, the final section was pretty good with what I handled with the wall cycles.

Payman wrote:The first section was good until the second cage where I lost 3 seconds doing a backup, the second section was near perfect with the roll boost movement and got the RNG optimization at the end, the final section was decent but sadly I lost 2 seconds from taking damage from a fuzzball and 3 seconds to the teensie cage break.

Looks pretty technical, I guess we'll see if it ends up being used.
