Engineering Student and ANW veteran Ian Dory once again cleared the finals course ending up with 4th place. Data Analyst Ethan Swanson made it all the way to the Invisible Ladder, but failed when he was about 24 feet up but still placed 5th overall.

The round featured one new obstacle, the Circuit Board which had took out both Meagan Martin and Dan Polizzi, who both still made it to the Las Vegas finals. Meagan Martin is known for being the third woman ever to qualify for the Las Vegas finals, after Jessie Graff and Kacy Catanzaro.
