After completing the four steps, the competitor had to jump for a rope attached to a zip-line and let go above the platform, which was slanted like with the Godantobi obstacle in previous tournaments. Sometimes this is also called the "Slider Steps".
The Step Slider appeared as the first obstacle in Stage One on American Ninja Warrior 4. It was proven to be an extremely easy obstacle for competitors, as only 3 competitors failed on this (including Matthew Derouen). On American Ninja Warrior 5, it was replaced by the Timbers.

Note: As it was the first obstacle of the stage, 100 people must have attempted the obstacle in each tournament.
