The Vertical Limit (バーティカルリミット) is an obstacle introduced in the Third Stage of the course redesign in SASUKE RISING, the tournament after Urushihara Yuuji's second kanzenseiha.

The obstacle is composed of a flat wall with a 1 cm ledge embedded on the bottom of the wall. Competitors must cross the wall using the pinch grip or using only their fingertips to reach the green resting bar of the Pipe Slider.

Since its introduction on SASUKE 28, the obstacle have 3 different versions, with Morimoto Yūsuke being the only person to attempt all three versions.

The Sidewinder R, Flying Chute, Jumping Spider and Vertical Limit are the only obstacles which have been modified three tournaments in a row.

Vertical Limit


The first version of the Vertical Limit (バーティカルリミット) is an obstacle introduced in the Third Stage with the course redesign in SASUKE 28 as the fifth obstacle.

The obstacle is composed of one long flat wall with a 1cm ledge placed on the bottom of the wall. There are also two resting bars that competitors can grab onto after crossing the obstacle, which would lead them to the next obstacle. (The Pipe Slider)

Out of the four people to attempt the obstacle in a span of three competitions, only one competitor (Kishimoto Shinya) failed it.

Vertical Limit Kai


In SASUKE 31, the obstacle was re-named to the Vertical Limit Kai (バーティカルリミット改), literally "Modified Vertical Limit".

The obstacle was split into two sections, where the smaller section was placed 30 cm forward to make the transition that more difficult.

Both competitors to attempt it, Morimoto Yūsuke and Kanno Hitoshi showed signs of struggle during the transition, although Kanno was the only of the two to fail the obstacle.

This version only lasted for one competition, with Morimoto Yūsuke achieving kanzenseiha, which resulted in the obstacle being modified once again.

SASUKE 32 Version


In SASUKE 32, the tournament following Morimoto Yusuke's kanzenseiha, this obstacle was modified in three separate sections instead of two, with the ledges facing the opposite direction compare to the previous tournament.

The distance between the first to second section, and second to third section is 30cm and 60cm respectively. The transition from the third section to the resting bar is 15cm.

Unlike the past versions of the obstacle, in which the resting bar is in front of the obstacle, the resting bar in this version is placed beside the third section.

To make it incredibly difficult, it is tied together with the Ultra Crazy Cliffhanger with no rest.

With the obstacle modified once again, this obstacle became one of the four obstacles to be modified in three consecutive tournaments since SASUKE 30 along with the Jumping Spider, Flying Chute and Sidewinder R.

The first person to make it there, Drew Drechsel, fell instantly upon attempting the transition from the Ultra Crazy Cliffhanger.

In SASUKE 33, it was also connected to the Pipe Slider by adding a netting on the green resting bars, which made the second half of the Third Stage having no resting point. No one attempted it that tournament, albeit the changed is undone in the next tournament.
