The obstacle was almost exactly what its name implied. Competitors must climb up a rope from the Tarzan Jump, aided by a vertical wall to reach the top of a platform, and reached the button to complete the First Stage.
From SASUKE 10 to SASUKE 12, the rope rested against the wall, and the Tarzan Jump was replaced by the Tarzan Rope. However, due to the Tarzan Rope only eliminated 6 competitors in its appearance in 3 tournaments, the Tarzan Jump was brought back in the next tournament.
From SASUKE 3 to SASUKE 12, the wall was 5.4 meters high. Starting in SASUKE 13, the wall had bamboo chutes running down the front of it, to make the obstacle a bit more difficult; also the wall slightly changed a bit, divided into 2 parts. 2 more bamboo chutes were added to the wall in SASUKE 15, but all of them were removed in SASUKE 16 and SASUKE 17, with the wall was rounded.
In SASUKE 18 (the first tournament after Nagano Makoto's kanzenseiha in SASUKE 17), the obstacle was replaced with the Rope Ladder and had been used until SASUKE 29, before being replaced by the Lumberjack Climb in SASUKE 30.
