Nagano Makoto was the first person to attempt this obstacle, and as soon as he tried to grab the third ledge, he accidentally got hold of the top of the frame with one hand. Thus Nagano was said to go out of course and he was disqualified. He was offered a rerun by the producers, but declined because he felt he didn't deserve another try.
He was the closest to clearing the Shin-Cliff Hanger where as the other two, Nagasaki Shunsuke and Takahashi Kenji both fell on the transition, with Nagasaki trying to clear it without jumping and Takahashi losing his grip.
In future competitions
To avoid more disqualifications, panels were attached to the top of the frame in the next competition. In two competitions (SASUKE 21 and 23), Nagano completed the Shin-Cliffhanger. The obstacle lasted until SASUKE 24 which is the competition which Urushihara Yuuji achieved kanzenseiha.
