Bungee Rope Climb (バンジーロープクライム), later renamed as Rope Climb (ロープクライム) in SASUKE 27 (not to be confused with Rope Climb that was used in First Stage), is the sixth obstacle in Third Stage from SASUKE 25 to SASUKE 27. It was basically a hybrid of Rope Junction and Tarzan Rope, with the number of ropes being reduced to three and it raise in height as the rope was shortened as competitors progressed.

Originally, the third rope was much shorter that its end is at the same height as the resting bar, however, for unknown reasons, in SASUKE 26, the third rope was made longer. It once again modified in SASUKE 27, with all the ropes being made significantly longer compared from the previous two tournaments, with the resting bar was now placed below the third rope to accommodate the height of Bar Glider, making it one of nine obstacles in SASUKE's history to be modified in three consecutive tournaments, with the others being Jumping Spider, Flying Chute, Half-Pipe Attack, Balance Tank, Rolling Escargot, Vertical Limit, Sidewinder R, and Fish Bone.
