One year ago, I destroyed the original version of my custom built Heavenly Traverse in a video because I made it out of wood and it broke. Now, the Heavenly Traverse has upgraded to metal and should not break under my own weight!
Anyway, for the inaugural episode of Obstacle Lab, join me as I test myself to see how many laps I can do on the Heavenly Traverse before I tire out. Hopefully I can beat my personal record!
It's the second half of Stage 1! The top competitors impress on the course and some new faces reach Stage 2 for the first time. William takes a closer look at why so many people failed the Double Dipper as well as how ANW should consider restructuring their safety precautions. He also takes a look at the course as a whole and goes over what changes he would make for next year.
Also, scorpions are consumed, records are broken and HOLY CRAP IS THAT NICHOLAS COOLRIDGE?!
The National Finals have begun! The Midoriyama course has ascended in Las Vegas where 97 ninjas will attempt to take down its four stage course. For Stage 1, the course has some interesting new obstacles and some obstacles that need to go away. Join William as he breaks down the course as well as all the exciting clears and shocking failures!
Also, Jamie Rahn loses a shoe, multiple injuries are witnessed and the importance of knowing how much time is left on the clock!
The city finals round has begun! William talks about the dinosaur less Los Angeles Finals. The course featured a strong new obstacle with the Baton Pass and a super nerfed Doorknob Drop. William discusses the idea of course nerfs and why it's not a bad thing overall.
Also, William talks about why time is so important on the course and why the editing felt rushed at the end. Nick Hansen, Adam Rayl, and Sean Bryan got surprisingly little fanfare considering how good they are.
