Intro

The 7th Competition, official name: SASUKE2001春 (literally SASUKE 2001 Spring) is the third tournament after Akiyama Kazuhiko's kanzenseiha. For the third straight tournament, the First and Third Stages were unchanged.

However, due to the 100% completion rate of the Second Stage in the previous tournament, the stage underwent a tremendous redesign. The first two obstacles were replaced with the Chain Reaction and Brick Climb (not an official obstacle), and a revamped Spider Walk. James Okada cleared with 0.1 seconds left, tying Hasegawa Ken's record in SASUKE 1. The record was broken in SASUKE 27, when Ishikawa Terukazu cleared with 0.06 seconds left. The time limit was raised to 90 seconds.

This was also future SASUKE All-Star Nagano Makoto's first tournament, although he could not scale the Soritatsu Kabe and his run was not shown during the broadcast.

Yamamoto Shingo became the first competitor to attempt the new Final Stage, consisting of 12.5-meter Spider Climb and 10-meter Tsuna Nobori, with the time limit was kept the same at 30 seconds. However, Yamamoto has a history of shoulder problems and shortly after beginning the Spider Climb, he slipped off and dislocated his shoulder.
