Rolling Log

A competitor trying to conquer the Rolling Log.

The Rolling Log is a classic obstacle in the SASUKE competitions, and one of the most deadly. Mostly appearing in the earlier contests, the Rolling Log made a substantial absence before returning to the more recent Stage 1 of Ninja Warrior.


The Rolling Log consists of a wooden, horizontal log that is stationed at a post where a challenger can grab onto it. Once they grasp it, they start to roll violently across inclined steel beams to try to reach the other side. The kinetic force of the log usually overcomes the competitors' grip on the log, making them fall. The success rate on the Rolling Log is not high at all.
