I don't normally watch this sort of stuff but with the strong climber contingent within it this time around I can see the fun of it.
It'll be interesting to see how climbers fare against the other background pursuits involved with the other competitors...

Go climbers!

Post edit 24/07/17; Commiserations to Andrea who lucked-out on the 2nd but last (last is easy for a climber), obstacle. She actually completed it, though just skimmed the water and got disqualified... She made Ninja-history by beating the yanks with a first season ascent of the warped-wall obstacle which took their women 6 years to do it; with the brits still to achieve it at three years...
All three other climbers (Tom O'Halloran, Ben and Lee Cossey), are still in the race.

OK I took the bait and watched the finale because of the climber connection ...

That 2nd stage looked very much like they were set up to fail.
i.e. "Whatever happens, we can't have anyone complete the course in season 1", said the TV producer

Would love to hear the opinions of Lee, Ben, Andrea or Tom to hear if anyone there actually thought it was possible for anyone, ever.

Its meant to be hard..in the US version it took several season for someone to finish the course and in the end those guys had experienced and trained specifically for the obstacles....and the obstacles are much the same there....ie I reckon if they want to finish the course they might have to do a bit of specific training for it like they have done in the overseas version.

You're missing the point, Rod. People aren't bitching that the course was too hard. The problem is that they put a ludicrously short time limit on it. It smacks of last minute concern that contestants were performing better than expected.

There have been a few formats on the series elsewhere and the timed run has been a feature before, so nope not missing the point ODH, just disagreeing with it that it was a fix...now put away ya tin foil hat

I'm with ODH here.

Even at (say) 90 seconds no-one gets through, and yet even that wasn't to the final stage - only the second half of the last stage. Plus our Ninja Warriors were undoubtedly better prepared than US in season 1 because of the benefit of watching it so many times and gyms that already existed here before the show so they should have gone at least close rather than getting horribly spanked.

Maybe not a fix, but definitely an overreaction.
