The Maruta Zaka (丸太坂), referred to as the Log Slope on Ninja Warrior, was a First Stage obstacle in SASUKE 17.

It was a log 30cm in diameter and 4 meters wide that was on an incline. As the competitors walked up the log, it would roll from side to side (almost similar to the Burasagari Maruta).

Used as the second obstacle, it pushed the Sandan Rolling Maruta to the third obstacle. It didn't take out many competitors and after this tournament (due to Nagano Makoto's kanzenseiha), the course was redesigned and the Maruta Zaka was removed.
