  • Red Color painted area or things are Out of Bound and you can't touch these things.
  • If you do one obstacle wrong you can do it again and again until you complete it.
  • don’t  try to do anyone more than twice until you complete all obstacles.
  • Once you complete all obstacles you are allowed to all obstacles or one obstacles again and again.
  • When you enter the area you will stand in a circle shape and wait for the whistle
  • The helper blow the whistle and your time starts and you can start Obstacles
  • When he again make whistle your time is over and you have to area.
  • If you are in middle of any obstacles i.e hanging bridge, zig-zag, monkey bridge.
  • If you get all obstacles completed before time then you can do obstacles again. If you perform one obstacles again and again after completing all then you’ll get its mark for each time.
  • For example, you have completed all obstacles before and time and you perform rope climbing 3 times again then you’ll be given 11x3=33 marks.
  • But if you haven’t completed all obstacles and you perform rope climbing 3 times then you’ll be given marks of only one time which is 11.  


Start point:

It is better to perform it in a sequence.
It has the following obstacles:

Red Circle:

It is a circle in which you will stand until the helper blow whistle.
It is also known as starting point because from here you have to start obstacles

1.Monkey Bridge:

It is made of two parallel ropes which are at the height of 13 feet. The area between these two ropes is 4 feet. One side of this has a ladder and the other side has ropes. Candidates will climb at one side with the help of the ladder. There is two ways to complete it.
  • Catch the upper rope and stand on the lower rope and walk on lower rope.
  • Or crawl on the lower rope like monkey crawling.

Thus candidate will go to the other side
At the other side he will come down by the help of rope.
At the rope, there is a blue mark below which you can also jump to the ground but It is dangerous for  you to jump.
If you jump and your hands are upper than the blue mark, the obstacle will not consider to be done.

 2. Tarzan Swing

This is also an easy obstacle
It is just like a swing. There will be slide of 3 feet height you will climb to this slide by a drum or a small ladder. Then the helper will give you the rope. You will grip the rope and will jump thus you will swing to the other side. At that side you will land on the other slide of same height of 3 feet
then after safe landing you can jump on ground and thus the obstacle is done.
By doing this rightly you will get 5 numbers
  • Note that the ground between these two slides is out of Bound
  • If you fell down from the swing toward the Out of Bound area the obstacle will not consider being completed.

3. Rope climbing

It is the one most difficult obstacle. It is a rope fastens with a pool above. Its height is 9 feet
