Shoulder Walk (ショルダーウォーク) is an obstacle introduced into Second Stage as part of the renewal after Nagano Makoto's Kanzenseiha, replacing Wall Lifting for the first time as the final obstacle of Second Stage in SASUKE.
The obstacle was derived from Galleon in VIKING, with competitors crossing two bridges carrying a yoke consisting of two cages with balls in them hanging from each end of the yoke on their shoulders that weighs 40 kg in total. The second bridge was offset to the left of the first bridge, with a gap separating them as part of making it difficult. By comparison, on Galleon, competitors had to cross a triangular bridge situated on a rotator carrying a yoke that weighed 35 kg in VIKING 1 and 25 kg in VIKING 2 and 3.
The obstacle required strength, balance, and speed. However, despite this anticipated difficulty, the obstacle proved very simple to clear, and no one failed it during the tournament, prompting the producers to bring back Wall Lifting for the following tournament.
