The Double Down is an obstacle, firstly introduced as the second obstacle during the fourth and fifth episodes of the qualifiers on American Ninja Warrior 13.
This obstacle consisted of two bars which was placed in-between the structure of the track, in a similar appearance to the Double Dipper. Competitors must grab the first bar from the trampoline, pull the bar and the track upwards in a similar fashion to Crank It Up in order to make the bar sliding down the curve track. The bar would move back and forth at the end, so competitors must time the transfer to the second bar correctly, repeat the same process, and make the landing to the platform.
The obstacle retained the difficulty of both Crank it Up and the Double Dipper variants. During the fourth episode of the qualifiers, it knocked out 25 competitors, including Angela Gargano, Cheyenne Arrington, Kevin Liang and John Huie.
During the fifth episode of the qualifiers, the obstacle once again proved to be destructive. A total of 24 competitors failed on the obstacle this time; just one competitor short of its previous appearance in the last episode. This included Miles Avery, McKenna Haase, Jimmy Choi, and most shockingly, Michael Torres (marking his first season where he was eliminated in qualifiers). At the end of the qualifiers, this obstacle simultaneously took out the highest (fourth episode) and second highest (fifth episode) amount of competitors from a single obstacle in a qualifiers episode.
