The obstacle features two bars with rings on its sides, a similar configuration as to an eyeglass, and a series of hooks in which some will spin.
Competitors must navigate the eyeglass through three hooks by locking the rings onto the hook. The first hook is stationary and consists of two prongs. While the second and third hooks can spin and consist of three prongs in a similar appearance to the second hook of the Fly Hooks. Once they reach the last spinning hook, they can reach for the second eyeglass in which they must do a transition from the first pair of hooks to the second pair of hooks in a similar fashion to the Sky Hooks.
Australian Ninja Warrior
The Eyeglass Alley appeared in Australian Ninja Warrior 6 as the second obstacle of Stage Two, renamed as Thread the Needle and receiving major modifications:
- Competitors didn't have to navigate the eyeglass through different hooks, and there was only the laché part.
- There were three eyeglasses, with rings on the eyeglasses becoming progressively smaller as competitors made it through the obstacle.
In total, two competitors fell on this obstacle out of nine competitors that attempted it: Le Hua and Bryson Klein.
Competitors' Success Rate
- All results based on the NBC broadcast and external information found
- During Flip Rodriguez's Twitch stream, it was revealed that the original idea of Eyeglass Alley was to only have one eyeglass, which meant that once competitors reach the last spinning hook, they must continue navigating towards the pairs of hooks. It was also known that no one completed the obstacle with this configuration once testers tried the obstacle.
