The Sending Climber (センディングクライマー) was a third stage obstacle used in SASUKE 19 and SASUKE 20. It replaced the Climbing Bars in the 19th competition and was replaced with Hang Climbing in SASUKE 21. It was never attempted, but its function was very similar to the Hang Climbing obstacle. It was an acutely angled wall scattered with rock climbing artifacts. Its major difference from Hang Climbing was that the rocks were smaller, requiring more finger strength than the Hang Climbing obstacle in order to pass it; furthermore, the Sending Climber was farther away from the Jumping Bars than the Hang Climbing, making the transition in between the obstacles harder. It was between the Jumping Bars and Spider Flip, allowing competitors no rest in between the obstacles.
Levi Meeuwenberg mentioned in an interview that unlike the Hang Climbing, competitors would not be allowed to use their feet.
