The Tarzan Jump (ターザンジャンプ) (the name that was used from SASUKE 3-9, as well as 13-17) , renamed Tarzan Rope (ターザンロープ) (the name used from SASUKE 18-34) was the penultimate obstacle in SASUKE's First Stage from SASUKE 3 to SASUKE 35, whereupon it was removed indirectly by the Dragon Glider due to space constraint.

Competitors must grab onto a rope and swing to the next obstacle, either:

From SASUKE 10 to SASUKE 12, a different obstacle (also called the Tarzan Rope) directly preceded the Rope Climb. This version, however, only had six competitors fail in its appearance in three tournaments, resulting in the Tarzan Jump being brought back in the next tournament.

During the broadcast of Ninja Warrior, the Tarzan Jump/Tarzan Rope was not an obstacle in its own right, but was considered a part of the Rope Climb/Rope Ladder. From SASUKE 18 to SASUKE 27 (which was the last SASUKE tournament to be edited and aired on G4, due to Monster9's bankruptcy on November 2011), the Tarzan Rope and Rope Climb was called collectively the Final Climb.

American Ninja Warrior Appearances

On American Ninja Warrior 1 and American Ninja Warrior 2, a similar obstacle (called as the Rope Swing) appeared as the second obstacle during qualifying and semifinal.

American Ninja Warrior 4's Final Climb in Stage One

American Ninja Warrior 6's Final Climb in Stage One

Later, the Tarzan Rope appeared as the final obstacle in Stage One from American Ninja Warrior 4 to American Ninja Warrior 6. However, just like during G4's broadcast of Ninja Warrior, the obstacle was combined with the Rope Ladder, and collectively called Final Climb.

On American Ninja Warrior 7, the Tarzan Rope part of the Final Climb was replaced by an angled platform at the starting platform and three jumping bars, resulting in the introduction of a new obstacle as the Triple Swing.

Other Appearances

SASUKE Vietnam 4's Tarzan Rope

Tarzan Đu Dây (SASUKE Vietnam's official name for the Tarzan Rope) appeared as the fifth obstacle in Stage 1B on SASUKE Vietnam 1, SASUKE Vietnam 3, SASUKE Vietnam 4, and SASUKE Vietnam 5, and as the fifth obstacle in Stage 1A on SASUKE Vietnam 2. The Tarzan Rope used on SASUKE Vietnam was the same as the Tarzan Rope from SASUKE 30 to SASUKE 34 (since the competitors must traverse the Lumberjack Climb after that).

On SASUKE Vietnam 1, the obstacle had a 93.88% completion rate in Stage 1B, eliminating 3 out of 49 competitors who attempted it.
