Pyramid Scheme

With nowhere to properly apply a firm grip to, you are going to need to get creative with your fellow Mudders on Pyramid Scheme to create a base. In order to hoist yourself up and over this angled wall, make a human pyramid with your team and use their shoulders as a ladder mechanism to successfully crush this obstacle.

How To Conquer
With a lot of Tough Mudder obstacles, getting a running start and trying your best on the obstacles is sometimes the most fun. Pyramid Scheme is a perfect exmaple of this up a steep angled wall that has no grip points. 1, 2, 3…GO. If that doesn’t work, take the team approach: either you, yourself – or your teammate lay flat on their back, creating a human ladder.


After taking a sabbatical in 2021, Pyramid Scheme is BACK in the tail end of 2022 with a teamwork challenge that will bring you closer to Mudder Nation.
