The Circle Hammer (サークルハンマー) is an obstacle that was introduced in SASUKE 22 to replace the Pole Maze in the First Stage.

It was positioned after the Rokudantobi as the course's second obstacle, thus moving the Log Grip to the third position.

Its function was vaguely similar to the Metal Spin, where competitors have to hold on and maneuver a rope that was suspended from a downward-angled circular frame and land on a platform at the end of the track.

The obstacle was proven to be very simple and functioned more as a time waster on the course, as only 4 competitors failed on this obstacle (including Olivia Munn). Therefore, it was replaced by the Curtain Slider in SASUKE 23.

The original design of the obstacle placed the rope much higher than the platform therefore making it much harder to land.
