Competitors were provided swing to reach a higher landing platform, which had a bar laid on it to help competitors pull themselves up to the landing mat. It was however not mandatory to use either the swing or the bar in a single run, as some competitors like Nagano Makoto either have a great height advantage and/or throw enough momentum to went directly to the landing platform from the swing without touching the bar, while some competitors like David Campbell and Brian Orosco have such a good jump from the starting platform, they didn't require the swing and went directly to the bar (In fact, Lee En-Chih comfirmed that this movement is illegal, but American competitors claimed that they didn't know about the rule, so they didn't be disqualified).
Despite all of that, the obstacle still did good damage for the second obstacle, as it eliminated ten competitors, which in some cases happened due to the competitors trying to leap straight from the starting platform to the bar without using the swing. It was however replaced indirectly by Spin Bridge in SASUKE 27.
