I think I found a skip for the Scorched Sands jump in Minimal Jumps but I don't think it's allowed. If you jump on the edge of the cactus head at 8810 53 4225, it cancels your jump and gives you decent forward momentum, which is a Minecraft bug. emeryllium said they thought it was okay since it doesn't boost you upwards, but I disagree since it increments the jumps counter in the Statistics tab. Does anyone else know if this is allowed?

(Also first time using speedrun.com forum so hopefully I didn't mess up)
(Edit 2: This is really easy to perform, but it's a fairly tight window to get enough momentum to get onto the next layer of sand - I only get it about 1 in 50 to 100 tries)

I'd say it's allowed. No upwards momentum = definitely not a jump by our means.

Either way, this is a glitch and therefore isn't allowed in glitchless. You can do it in Minimal Jumps Any%, though.

Makes sense, also that means jumpless Gemstone Parkour is possible now LOL

Wait, so since we are using the definition that "No upwards momentum = definitely not a jump.." is the inverse true? if so, the hydro-hop done in Magic Meadow would then count as a jump

You can still just get out of the river by sprinting to the edge and it'll boost you up a bit without pressing space
