Competitors must run across 5 ascending top-heavy spinning pipes that would topple when the competitors stepped on them. Balance was served as a key aspect to completing this obstacle, as several competitors tripped at the fifth pipe and got hung up and lost valuable time, including Chris DiGangi and Brandon Pannell. However, a good amount of them could reach the landing platform and complete the obstacle.
Although this obstacle was proven to be harder than its predecessor (the Broken Bridge), just like its predecessor, almost all of the competitors who reached this obstacle could complete it, as only Karsten Williams and Meagan Martin failed. In Meagan Martin's case, her time ran out after completing the previous obstacle (the Warped Wall), therefore didn't have a chance to attempt the obstacle.
