Tough Mudder's 20 Most Badass Obstacles

Got the guts to enter? Presenting our Men's Fitness Survival Guide to Tough Mudder's most intense challenges — loaded with insider-approved strategies to get you through America's toughest obstacle course.

12. Everest

Climbing Everest is much more than riding your average skate or snow park half-pipe. This quarter-pipe requires you to sprint up, launching your body to Tough Mudder teammates at the top. And here’s hoping they catch you. If not, you’ll slide down the slippery wooden side coated in mud and grease.

Hint: The trick is getting the first person up Everest, so he can help pull others up. To do this, form a human chain linking your bodies shoulder to shoulder in a pyramid, with a few people on shoulders. Then a small, strong volunteer can scale everyone’s shoulders to the top.
