The Rope Climb (ロープクライム) was the final First Stage obstacle from SASUKE 3 up until Nagano Makoto's kanzenseiha in SASUKE 17. The obstacle is almost exactly what its name implies. A competitor must climb up a rope, aided by a vertical wall to reach the top of a platform, where the finish buzzer is.
From SASUKE 3 to SASUKE 12, the wall was 5.4 meters high; the height may have increased with the course redesign in SASUKE 13, but that is not known. Starting in SASUKE 13, the wall had bamboo chutes running down the front of it to make it a bit more difficult, and the wall slightly changed a bit. From SASUKE 16 to SASUKE 17, the wall was rounded and the bamboo chutes were removed.
