Many have tried and failed to conquer the revered third stage of American Ninja Warrior’s Mt. Midoriyama obstacle course since the series began in 2009.
On the season 7 finale of the NBC show, two men, Isaac Caldiero and Geoff Britten, shredded the four-stage, 23-obstacle course, with one emerging as the fastest.
Caldiero, a 33-year-old professional rock climber and part-time bus boy, plowed through stage three, utilizing a ton of upper body and core strength to advance to the final round, which was a precarious 75-foot rope climb.
Take a look at his mesmerizing performance in the above video.
He beat out the 36-year-old Britten by 3.6 seconds, who barely edged stage four in the required 30-second time limit, to win the $1 million grand prize.
You can check out Britten’s performance in stage three, which is nothing to sneeze at, in the video below.
