I will attempt to clarify, feel free to correct me if I am wrong!

You can score points for the white gecko hanging on the wall and/or your team’s robot hanging on the wall. 

In either case, the wall must completely support the weight of the object attached to the wall. Your robot and the gecko may be touching one another, but the wall must fully support the weight of your robot and the white gecko in order to score points for either. 

Example: the robot sits on the play field, holding the gecko while the gecko merely touches the wall. (no points awarded) 
Example: the robot fully hangs on the wall while holding the white gecko. (points awarded only for robot) 
Example: the gecko is fully supported by the wall, while the robot is leaning against the wall. (points awarded only for gecko) 
Example: the robot and the gecko hang fully from the wall and only the gecko’s tail touches the robot. (points awarded for both)
