The obstacle consisted of five ropes hanging from the scaffolding above over a mud pit. The competitor must cross all five ropes to make it to the next obstacle, the Rope Climb.
Competitors were also allowed to bypass as many ropes as they wished. Some competitors jumped past the obstacle all together, tried to make it to the Rope Climb (as Ījima Toyohisa did in SASUKE 12). For SASUKE 12 the number of ropes was decreased by one thus increasing the size of the gaps between each rope and forcing competitors to use all the ropes to reach the Rope Climb. It's most commonly named the Tarzan Swing.
