This article is about a movement which can be dangerous if preformed incorrectly or without proper preparation. Perform this movement with caution.

The Thief Vault is a slightly modified or hybrid movement of the Lazy Vault and the Dash Vault. It is less well-known and is considered by some to not be a useful technique or even a proper movement. It is used as a slightly faster alternative to the Lazy Vault, and the exit is more perpendicular to the obstacle as in a Dash Vault, rather than being parallel to the obstacle as in a Lazy Vault.


  1. Approach the obstacle as you would in a lazy vault, with the inside arm on the obstacle.
  2. Jump off using your inside leg, and rather than swinging it over the wall, swing your outside leg up and over before the inside leg.
  3. Place the other hand behind you, keeping the elbow bent not straight to absorb the impact.
  4. Push off with your hands and exit in the same way you would in a dash vault; with your legs split, and come out running (or use an appropriate landing if necessary).
