American Ninja Warrior 12's Rib Run

Rib Run is an obstacle first introduced as the fourth obstacle in the first episode of qualifiers on American Ninja Warrior 12.

The concept of this obstacle was similar to the Quintuple Steps or Rokudantobi, where competitors must run across five steps to reach the landing platform. However, each of the steps for the Rib Run was rounded and attached to a pendulum similar to the one used on Swing Surfer that would swing perpendicular to the competitor. On this obstacle, the left side of the obstacle featured two steps, while the right side featured three steps.

On the first episode of the qualifiers, the obstacle was proven to be slightly easy, as it only eliminated four competitors: Robert Moffitt, John Huie, Sloane Cameron, and Dave Cavanagh. Coincidentally, the former two competitors were part of Allyssa Beird's team, while the latter two were part of Cavanagh's team.

On Night 2, once again four Ninjas fell on this obstacle: Christi Marie, Zane Paksi, Holly Cavazos and Taylor Amann.
