American Ninja Warrior 11's Shrinking Steps

The Shrinking Steps is an obstacle, firstly introduced as the first obstacle during city qualifiers round on American Ninja Warrior 11, replacing the Floating Steps from the past 3 American Ninja Warrior seasons.

Competitors must run across 5 steps and then grab a rope to reach the landing platform (in a similar fashion to the Sonic Swing). The steps went progressively higher and smaller when the competitors ran on them.

In its first season appearance, the obstacle had taken out competitors such as Selena Laniel, Paige Chapman, Kavon Sadler, Annie Dudek, Kat Ratcliff, Carl Fantauzzo, Jessica Helmer, Jimmy Choi and John Loobey.
