String Climb

With the diabolo spinning quickly, move the diabolo down the string so that it is spinning about one foot from the lifting hand stick.

Reach over the diabolo with the lifting hand-stick and make a loop over the axle with the string. Make sure the loop goes over the diabolo on the side that is furthest away from you.

Pull the string taut so the diabolo climbs up the string to the holding hand stick.

As the diabolo slows its climb, unhook the diabolo by looping the holding handstick under the side of the diabolo that is nearest to you.

Or, when the diabolo reaches the top, let it jump over the holding hand-stick and it will come back to rest on the string.
