American Ninja Warrior 13's Fly Hooks in Stage One

The Fly Hooks is an obstacle, firstly introduced as the eighth obstacle in Stage One on American Ninja Warrior 13, replacing the Twist & Fly from its past two recent appearances.

The obstacle featured a similar configuration as the Twist & Fly, with the presence of two arch-shaped handles. However, there was a free-moving ring resting on the first hook. While the second hook has three prongs instead of two.

Competitors must hold on to the ring and swing into a cradle placed on the second hook, in a similar manner to the Sky Hooks. After landing the ring in the second hook, they must build enough swing and momentum to grab the Rope Ladder, and then climbed it up to reach the buzzer.

In its first season appearance, this obstacle was paired with the The High Road as part of the Split Decision. This means that once the competitors decided to not press the button of the The High Road, they must attempt the Fly Hooks later on the run. However, unlike previous pairings of the Split Decision, competitors could still attempt the Fly Hooks once they missed the High Road's ring.

Multiple competitors would hung up on the transition between the hooks, costing them seconds from clearing the obstacle. This would lead to eight competitors either failing the obstacle (such as Jamie Rahn and R.J. Roman) or timing out on the stage (such as Tiana Webberley, Brett Sims, Christian Youst, Caiden Madzelan, Mike Beadle, and Hunter Guerard).
