The Lumberjack Climb (ランバージャッククライム) is an obstacle first introduced in SASUKE 30 which replaced the Rope Ladder, which had been the final First Stage obstacle since SASUKE 18. It was removed in SASUKE 35 indirectly by the Dragon Glider due to space constrain.

Like the Rope Ladder, this obstacle does not use the Tarzan Rope to traverse the obstacle. But instead, competitors must use their hands and feet (similar to the Spider Flip, I-Beam Cross or I-Beam Gap) to climb a plank with a length of 5.4m (6m in broadcast).

Once the competitor is on the obstacle, the landing platform of the Tarzan Rope is pulled away, similar to the landing platform of the obstacle before the Salmon Ladder being pulled away, when the competitor is on the obstacle (as was shown during Darvish Kenji's run in SASUKE 33, where he fell into the water because the obstacle was slick).
