Troublesome and disorienting, Skidmarked is a menacing ten-foot wall angled toward Mudders. Work as a team to ultra-boost each other up to the Mudders hanging down from the top. Fail to brainstorm a creative team plan of attack with the Mudders on the other side, and your head’s gonna be spinning.

Tough Mudder Tips

Don’t be deceived – this one is unlike any wall you’ve ever climbed. If going it alone, jog to the obstacle and jump as high as you can to grab the top of the wall. Using a strict pull-up to get your chest onto the wall, swing your legs to the back. Hop onto the provided cleat as a platform to help your fellow Mudders. For those (read: most) that need assistance, tackle this one like Everest: reach for a helping hand from above. Without a wall to lean into, a boost from below is a challenging proposition.

As a Legionnaire, you earn the right to bypass Electroshock Therapy at the end of a Tough Mudder Course. Unlike the walk of shame you did this morning, this obstacle takes you to higher ground to watch first timers dodge a field of wires. After your exit to a crash pad below, what comes next is up to you - go straight for a Cold Shock Top or go back for a dose of Electroshock.
