The Pole Maze ( ポールメイズ ) is a obstacle introduced with the course redesign after Nagano Makoto's kanzenseiha in SASUKE 17. The competitor must grab a pole leaning against the first platform and vault to the other side. The pole is anchored in the middle of the water pit, and the top of the pole must be guided through a track above. It is essentially a mix of the Pole Jump and the Rope Maze from VIKING. In SASUKE 19, the maze was lengthened and changed to make the obstacle harder to navigate. It functions as a time waster as many that had cleared it with difficulty timed out on later obstacles. It was never a serious threat and was replaced with the Circle Hammer in SASUKE 22.
