It'd be geared in a way that you can climb with it. Better hurry, though. It goes down slowly, like the rock climbing obstacle in Sasuke 2.
And yeah, you're pretty much right. I was thinking something like as soon as you touch the first rope, you have ten seconds to push off the wall and get to the next rope. At the ten second mark, the rope is cut and you fall. So, the stage would have to be at least 30 seconds long. I was going to make the height of the arm bike so that it took about 30 seconds to complete, making the stage a nice, even minute.
Then I could call it "Minute of Hell" or something snazzy like that.
lol extremity lol I think a kind of hang climbing type wall would be cool before the rope personally. I've no problem with the real one anyway the ladder and rope most people knew by the point of sasuke 22 so no one really should have been suprised by it I kinda like the motif of Heavenly Ladder - your climbing to the heavens for glory and the G rope is the GOAL ROPE maybe its a cool theme kinda steps to heaven sorta thing. Only improvement id make is time 35 sec is more than fair IMO although in sasuke 23 hopefully we will see some more attempts and if others don't do as well as Yuji did on it then maybe there is a valid enough reason for the time limit it is.
I personally think they took into account the condition the competitior is in after clearing stage 3 especially in light of it being a fair way harder than it was before.
I miss the metal ladder personally but I didn't care either way. Poor guys had to go through the gauntlet as it was and only 1 person got there so I'm just happy someone GOT to the 4th stage so people can b**** about that too I picked middle of the road on the poll because I could care either way.

I would be very interested to have seen it attempted with the metal one but I can see why they made it ropey and in fairness I think they were right to. A solid set steel ladder is much easier to climb fast than a ropey one as you have no movements to throw you off rhythm, Had Yuuji attempted it with the steel ladder and with everything else as was in 22 - time limit etc he would have won without a doubt, he was insanly fast up the heavenly ladder so imagine him on a still one with no movement at all? It would have been too easy.
On a side while I quite like the ladder rope final if I was the owner of sasuke I personally would have left the final stage the same as in 17 id still add all the fancy lights and crap to the tower and have diff colour spider climb walls to fit in with sasuke new era ( red ones) but the challenge would be the same and bearing in mind the first 3 stages are much harder now and the toll on you, it would be hellish even Nagano would struggle to do it again.
Well like I said in 23 hopefully they will cut the time down to 35 seconds max, or perhaps theres a ulterior motive here and they wanted somebody to win to get the ratings back up and hence they gave Yuuji a good chance to with that time limit and will stick with it in 23 and hope someone wins.
Maybe the rope ladder is harder than we thought, maybe Yuuji got really lucky or he was just really good. I figure it should normally sway a little more than that... still the extra 15 seconds is a little much.
It didn't look like the ladder was designed to sway alot. Maybe some of that was Yuuji's technique, but it seems as though it was weighted towards the bottom. Then again, the guy weighs only 113lbs, how much force is he gonna create on that thing?
It also helps that he seemed to do the left hand, right foot/vice versa technique, climbing a rope ladder that way wont force much swaying, its supposed to keep from doing that. That's why people fail that carnival game, they just grin and bear it. Everything has a technique to do well and fast.
If someone is going to be an idiot.. I have the right to call them out for what they are. Lord knows everyone does it to me when I do it.

I was sort of impartial. My thoughts are more along the lines of how much downtime do they actually have bn stage 3/4. Stage 3 is so nuts on the upper body that if they hustle you directly to stage 4 by the time you even get to the rope your arms are done. As was pretty apparent in 22. 20-30 minutes recovery time may ease that a bit but if it's 5-10 minutes i can only imagine how your arms feel soon as you start up that ladder.

If I recall correctly, there was a span of 2 hours between the Third Stage and Final Stage in Sasuke 22.
I would expect that to be a bit shorter in subsequent tournaments, but they still have ropes and cameras and harnesses and lighting timing devices to situate, people to interview, dramatic yellings from reporters and commentators to yell. Anything less than an hour would be pretty impressive.
Because of the ladder, we won't be seeing any falls when the rope gets cut. Seeing the competitor fall was a symbol in a way and was awesome to watch.
Just thought of this:
We've only seen one compeitior in shin final stage; and he was legit 3ft away (not even) from winning it, his head was nearly thru the whole. So isn't it possible they just... let him up? like nagano in 12? Before the stage begins they could say, when we cut you, watch out for the ladder. And they just didnt cut Yuuji.
Oh and as for the whole time/rope thing.
Its appropiate; Yuuji's technique didnt sway the ladder or ropel do u think if like Terek or Nagano has been climbing, it woulda swayed? Hell Terek woulda broken the ladder! Yuuji was perfect for shin-final stage. Honestly, does it look like someone like him would make it? Even if Nagano used Yuuji's Technique; it would have swayed. Same with the rope.
The goal was for heavy people to be thrown off by this fs; and rly, wht light person would make the fs (Yuuji, aoki's weight)
