Curtain Swing (カーテンスイング) is an obstacle introduced on Third Stage as part of the renewal after Nagano Makoto's Kanzenseiha in SASUKE 17.

It is a modification of Curtain Cling. The obstacle consists of four small curtains (each 1 metre in length) that are hung diagonally and the bottom of each is within arm's reach. The competitors must swing from one to the next to get across. However, as seen during several moments in broadcast prior to Third Stage, there were apparently seven curtains, albeit with smaller gaps in between. For unknown reasons, the amount was reduced to four when Third Stage arrived.

The obstacle was proven to be easier than its predecessor, as all three competitors who attempted it easily cleared it, probably the reason it was replaced by Devil Steps in the following tournament.

SASUKE Ninja Warrior Indonesia's Curtain Grip in Final Stage

A smaller version of the Curtain Swing (called as the Curtain Grip) appeared as the second obstacle during Final Stage on SASUKE Ninja Warrior Indonesia.

However, unlike Curtain Swing, the obstacle featured five long hanging curtains. Competitors must across the obstacle (in a similar fashion with the Tarzan Rope) to reach the landing platform. Only one competitor failed on this obstacle.
