The obstacle featured seven small free hanging panels with holes on one side and a pair of handles similarly used to the Circuit Board. The panels are arranged at different heights and distances.
Competitors must first unhook the handles both placed on the first panel and navigate to the rest of the panels in order to advance. Since the panels are free hanging, it has the tendency to spin once competitors miss the panel, slowly sapping competitor's grip strength.
In its first appearance, no competitor failed the obstacle.
