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.

16. Spider's Web

A literal roadblock on the trail, Spider’s Web consists of a taught steel cable strung 15 feet above the ground between two trees. Rope cargo drapes over the steel cable creating a free dangling spider-web-like net. Climb to the top, using all muscle groups to stabilize you since the net sways back and forth. Once at the top, swing your legs over the top and climb down the other side.

Hint: Climb this one with teammates. If you time it right, you send the first person over. Then time it right so once they get over the top, the second person starts climbing. With two people climbing up and down opposite sides of the net, this applies even pressure and lessens the sway.
