This is a challenge to show repetitive movement that imitates climbing. This is the sign from



This is the sign from AcessoBrasil.  I was surprised to find this handshape, as it's not listed in the standard dictionaries as a handshape for LIBRAS, but the video shows a two-finger split, not a P, or 3-claw.

Here is another writing that may be clearer.  The shoulder shifts down as the hand moves up and over to climb a tree, then the other should tilts and eyes switch in the direction of movement. This whole movement happens multiple times alternately.


I think the movement is wrong because the movement is not forward, it's toward the center.
