Competitor must prop themselves against the two pads using only their arms (as if they were propping themselves in the Spider Walk), and then hung on as the contraption slid down the track, and then competitors must drop down to the landing pad below, as an intermediary to the next obstacle, the Swap Salmon Ladder.
As with the majority of the first Second Stage obstacles that have gone before it, the Cross Slider has caused relatively little damage. However, over the four tournaments it has been in place, 6 competitors have failed it, including Golden Bomber drummer Darvish Kenji, and comedian Nakayama Kinnikun.
Starting on SASUKE Vietnam 2, after competitors dropped down to the landing platform, they must use the stairs to reach the next obstacle:
- the Cross Bridge (SASUKE Vietnam 2 and SASUKE Vietnam 3),
- the Rope Jungle (SASUKE Vietnam 4), or
- the Tick Tock (SASUKE Vietnam 5).
