  • Ultimate Cliffhanger Sasuke 26-27 Version Specifications Ultimate Cliffhanger Sasuke 26-27 Version Specifications This includes all gap lengths, ledge thickness, and degrees for each slanted ledge and incline. REMEMBER, this is for the Sasuke 26-27 version of the Ultimate Clliffhanger (most well-known version) which was modified from the original cliffhanger because the third ledge was lowered creating a height difference between the third and fourth ledge as well as decreasing the gap between the second and third ledge.
  • Ultimate Cliffhanger Sasuke 25 Version Specifications Ultimate Cliffhanger Sasuke 25 Version Specifications This blueprint is much like the previous one except it uses the metric system and is of the Sasuke 25 (original) version of the Ultimate Cliffhanger. The gap between the second and third ledge is significantly larger and there is no height difference between the third and fourth ledge.
  • Vertical Limit Specifications Vertical Limit Specifications Includes the thickness of the lip, the pinch grip thickness, and the overall length of the vertical limit.
  • 15 Foot Warped Wall Blueprint (Sideview) 15 Foot Warped Wall Blueprint (Sideview) This blueprints is of a 15 foot warped wall rather than the traditional 14 foot one. As you can see, different pieces of straight wood are used to form the contour of a wall. This is one of the easiest ways to build the warped wall, but is not necessarily the most accurate.
  • Warped Wall Geometry Warped Wall Geometry This diagram shows the math behind the warped wall. The wall itself is made from the bottom three quaters of a circle as highlighted in red. The green lines show important specifications with their values shown in blue.
  • Salmon Ladder Rung Specifications Salmon Ladder Rung Specifications This blueprint specifies the gap length between the rungs of the salmon ladder that I recommend. The official Ninja Warrior salmon ladder has gaps a foot long except for the final gap which is a foot and a half. The double salmon ladder gap is approximately 4 feet.
  • Salmon Ladder Recommendations Salmon Ladder Recommendations This picture illustrates some of the important components and materials for a salmon ladder. I use a wooden bar with large metal nails. I recommend trees spaced 3.5 - 4 feet apart so that you are not banging against each side of the salmon ladder. The bar should stick out about 6 inches on each side of the salmon ladder which means it should be about a foot longer than you space your two sides.
  • Globe Grasp Suggestions Globe Grasp Suggestions This image shows a closeup of an easy and cheap way of building the globe grasp. Baseballs are used rather than the metal balls used in the show. The recommended spacing between globes on each side is 2 feet as is the ideal spacing between each support beam.
