The Curtain Swing (カーテンスイング) is an obstacle introduced into the Third Stage following the complete course re-design after Nagano Makoto's kanzenseiha in SASUKE 17. It is a modification of the Curtain Cling obstacle. The obstacle consists of four small curtains 1 meter (3 ft 3.37 in) long that are hung diagonally, and the bottom of each is within arm's reach. The entrant must swing from one to the next to get across. The obstacle proved to be easier than its predecessor, as all three people who attempted it easily cleared it. It was replaced by the far more difficult Devil Steps in the following tournament. Before official runs of the Third Stage, there were apparently seven curtains, albeit with smaller gaps in between. For official runs, the amount was reduced to four.
