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 is vaguely similar to the Metal Spin, where competitors have to hold onto a rope that's suspended from a circular frame angled downward and land on a platform at the end of the track. The obstacle proved to be very simple and functions more as a time waster on the course. 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.
