Ladder to Hell

There’s a reason it’s not called Ladder to Fun.

Hold on tight while you climb this oversized ladder. Ladder to Hell will push your fear of heights to a new level. Once you reach the top of the obstacle, you have to carefully climb back down the other side from 4-5 meters in the air. Whatever you do, don’t look down.

Tough Mudder Tips

Seriously, don’t look down.
This one’s all about technique. Keep a low center of gravity as you move up the ladder, and make sure you keep three points of contact at all times: it can be two hands and a foot. Don’t bend over the rung when getting over the top. And watch out for your fellow mudders – no one likes having their fingers crushed.

DO GOOD. FEEL GOOD.
