Yes! It's just really really annoying and difficult, my past self did no reasonable play testing with others.
When this was originally released years ago, the difficulty was actually even more unfair, but I toned it down a fair bit for this release.
If you're getting stuck near the end when jumping from pillar to pillar, I just sorta jump in a Right, Left, Right, Left pattern so I don't have too much friction/slide.
Sorry this isn't designed better!
