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, due to the difficulty of the obstacles before it, but its function was very similar to the Hang Climbing obstacle. It was an acutely-angled wall scattered with rock climbing artifacts.

It does have major differences from the Hang Climbing that designate the two as separate obstacles, and not just redesigns:

  • The rocks were smaller, requiring more finger strength than the Hang Climbing obstacle in order to pass it.
  • The Sending Climber was farther away from the Jumping Bars than the Hang Climbing due to being at a different angle, making the transition in between the obstacles harder.
  • The obstacle was at a shallower angle with respect to the scaffolding, making it harder to maintain grip and discourage the usage of legs.

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.

On American Ninja Warrior 4, the Hang Climb's design was similar on the Sending Climber. But its function is the same as the Hang Climbing, with competitors can use their feet on the obstacle.
