American Ninja Warrior 6's Monkey Peg in Venice Beach

The Monkey Peg is an obstacle, firstly introduced as the fifth on American Ninja Warrior 5 in Miami, and appeared again on American Ninja Warrior 6 in Venice Beach.

It consisted of two sections. The first section was angled upward and has pegs that were placed alternately (referred as the Monkey Bar section). The second section was a downward-angled pegboard with holes in it (referred as the Pegboard section), and a peg in each of the first two holes.

After competitors traversed the first section, they must make a transition to the two loose pegs on the second section. Once there, they must move the two pegs from hole to hole, to reach the landing platform.

The second version of the Monkey Peg (called as the Monkey Pegs) appeared as the fourth obstacle on American Ninja Warrior 7 in San Pedro (Military). However, unlike on the original Monkey Peg, this version was entirely made with the arch-shaped pegboard. There were a total of twelve pegs, with ten stationary pegs, in which competitors must traverse it in a similar fashion with the Monkey Bar section of the Monkey Peg, and two removable pegs, in which competitors must move them from hole to hole, in a similar fashion with the Pegboard section of the Monkey Peg.

Later, a modified version of this obstacle (called as the Swinging Peg Board) would later appear as the eighth obstacle on American Ninja Warrior 9 during Los Angeles finals and Celebrity Ninja Warrior: Red Nose Day (shown during Stephen Amell's run).
