Bonjour, je ne comprends pas exactement ce qu'il a fait...
(preparing to attack a ledge on the top)

The whole contexte:
Bread pulled himself up into a crouch, his head held low. Fish whispered— one, two— and the boys charged up the rise - Raft of Stars by A.J.Graff

    Normally you would lower your body into a crouch from a standing position, you would crouch down, but if you've been lying down flat, you would pull yourself up into a crouch

    Propositions:
    "Bread...
    ...... /qui était allongé sur le sol/qui était couché sur le ventre/ .....
    ....../se replia sur lui-même/ se releva à moitié/....
    ..... /pour passer à la position accroupie/ pour s'accroupir/".

    ou bien encore: "Bread, qui était allongé sur le sol, se releva à moitié pour s'accroupir".
