The Great Wall (グレートウォール) was an obstacle that was introduced with the course redesign in SASUKE 18. It replaced the Soritatsu Kabe which had been in the First Stage since SASUKE 5.

The Great Wall had a similar function to the Soritatsu Kabe, except instead of grabbing the top of the wall, competitors have to grab a rope coming down to the height of the old Soritatsu Kabe and climb to the top. The Great Wall with the rope was 4.6m in height. The Great Wall was also narrower than the Soritatsu Kabe.

Despite being designed to be harder than its predecessor, the Great Wall only eliminated 4 competitors in its only tournament, as the rope was proven to be an easy reach for most competitors (especially the tall ones).

The rope was removed in SASUKE 19 and the wall was widened, returning the Soritatsu Kabe, which was 20cm higher than the original.
