It appears to be a variant of KUNOICHI 9's Slide Walk, except the poles are shorter, with the rings in which their feet must be placed are removed entirely, thus only relying on the competitor's upper-body.
Competitors have to slide down a wire track, but once they get to the middle, they have to lift up both of the poles over the stoppers, with similar concept from the Arm Rings, and continue to slide down to the landing pad.
While no one failed it, the obstacle was proven to be an efficient time waster and strength drainer. In its debut, 6 of the 13 competitors who attempted and completed the obstacle, later failed on next obstacles (either the Salmon Ladder Nobori or Salmon Ladder Kudari), while others like Hioki Masashi timed out later in the stage.
