a High Straddle is a type of blowdown that reminds one of getting raised on to their tippy toes because they are being goosed by a tree. In other words one passes a high straddle by high kicking their leg over the tree, standing on their toes with the foot that was on the ground, and then wiggling around with the tree in their crotch until they can reach the ground with their other foot. Sometimes this involves jumping onto the tree and landing with both feet off the ground and hoping that momentum carries one over to the other side. A mis-aimed jump on a tree with broken off branches may be an undesired sensory experience of the second or third order depending on which body part gets wracked.
