MORE INFO:

1. L-double angle wall | LEVEL: EASY (walking on bulges and clinging to them with your hands at the same time)

2. Boulder side wall | LEVEL: DIFFICULT (use climbing holds, ropes or gaps to lift yourself up. You are moving sideways, without touching the floor. Strength needed in arms and legs to move towards the end of the wall: 4 m.

3. Ladder wall | LEVEL: EASY (crossing this obstacle is very simple, climb on one side and descend on the other, as you would do on a regular ladder)đ

4. 45 degree wall | LEVEL: MEDIUM (run towards the wall, get a good grip and use your hands to grab the upper edge of the wall, then jump on the floor)

5. Sand bag carry | LEVEL: MEDIUM (the bags are filled with sand or soil and weigh approx. 15 kg. Usually when people see them on the track the first reaction is: “Oh no, not that too!”) :)  

6. Cargo net climb | LEVEL: DIFFICULT (climbing over the net is one of the hardest obstacles, as the climb is around 3 m. high. The net is also moving, which additionally makes climbing over it even harder. But, slowly and surely everyone can overcome it!
