Get a Grip

Maintaining three points of contact at all times is crucial for a safe climb.

Don’t Look Down

12 feet may not sound like a lot, but you’ll change your tune when you’re up there.

It’s (Not) Lonely at the Top

Whether it’s a hoist or a hand, help a fellow Mudder conquer their climb. They’ll do the same for you.

“I’m afraid of heights. I just didn’t realize it until a stranger had to coach me up and over.”

How To Conquer
You’ll want to use both your arms and legs on this one. Keeping three points of contact at all time (for stability), reach up with one hand/foot at a time to progress up the ladder. On the descent, move slowly, carefully, and deliberately between rungs, keeping a steady grip as you go.


An obstacle so classic, so simple, and so perfect that we can’t even remember when it first debuted. Sometimes you can’t beat simplicity.
