Lumberjack Climb (ランバージャッククライム) is a First Stage obstacle that was first introduced in SASUKE 30 to replace Rope Ladder, which had been the final obstacle of First Stage since SASUKE 18.

Like Rope Ladder previously, this obstacle does not use Tarzan Rope to traverse the obstacle. Instead, competitors must land on a floating mat from Tarzan Rope, before using their hands and feet in a similar fashion to Spider Flip to climb a plank that was 5.4 meters long and 45cm wide, though it was shown in broadcast as 6 meters.

Once the competitor is on the obstacle, the starting platform is pulled away, similar to the starting platform of every Salmon Ladder versions in Second Stage, meaning if competitors fell from the plank, they wouldn't be able to recover, as happened to Darvish Kenji in SASUKE 33.

This obstacle acted more as a time waster, as most competitors failed here by timing out. However, with the introduction of Dragon Glider in SASUKE 35, due to space constraints, the obstacle was indirectly removed.
