The Tarzan Rope (ターザンロープ), called as the Tarzan Jump on Ninja Warrior (or the Tarzan Swing during the broadcast of SASUKE 11), was the penultimate obstacle in the First Stage from SASUKE 10 to SASUKE 12.
The obstacle consisted of five ropes hanging from the scaffolding above, and over the water. Competitors 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, although he was timed out soon after reaching the top of the wall, due to showboating).
For SASUKE 12, the number of ropes was decreased by one, thus increasing the size of the gap between each rope and forcing competitors to use all the ropes to reach the Rope Climb.
American Ninja Warrior Appearance
The Tarzan Rope (called as the Tarzan Swing) appeared as the seventh obstacle during semifinal on American Ninja Warrior 1, with twenty hanging ropes instead of five. Also, the ropes were not rubbery.
