Heavenly Climb (ヘブンリィクライム) was the last obstacle of the timed portion of the Second Adventure Stage in the first two regular VIKING competitions and the last obstacle of the stage in VIKING 3 as a whole. It consisted of the competitor having to pole climb 5m to rotating propellers. After grabbing onto one of the propellers, they would have to shimmy to the end in order to get to the pipe beam at the top and cross it and press the button to stop the clock. Completing this in VIKING 1 and 2 allowed the competitor access to the Heartbreaker, while in VIKING 3, the competitor would complete the stage and move on to Final Viking. Since the competitor would normally be running out of time here, the best strategy was to reach the propeller closest to the pipe beam to reduce the distance they would have to wait as the propellers rotated at a slow speed.
