Figure S2. The first full blown ascent (in red) performed by mouse V05 is exceptionally long relative to subsequent ascents (in black), as though this mouse "gets trapped" on the wall. In mouse V05, the most extreme example of the phenomenon, the exceptional ascent lasted 3 minutes and 54 seconds, which is more than twice as long as the second longest ascent (1:46 minutes), and considerably longer than subsequent ascents reaching the top of the wire mesh (approx. 30 seconds each). This ascent is wide and involves a high number of pivots and direction changes, which usually characterize ascents performed in a late stage of the build-up in width and complexity.
