As season 13 of American Ninja Warrior plunges deeper into the Semifinals, it gives us the chance to process what happened in the Qualifiers. With all the information now available from the first round of competition, we have a better picture of how things went compared to previous seasons.

Today, we’re taking a look back at the Mega Wall’s role in this year’s competition. For season 13, the original Mega Wall rules were used. Ninjas had one chance to attempt the 18-foot wall. If they failed, they had one remaining attempt on the 14.5-foot Warped Wall.

Season 13 saw 24 Mega Wall attempts in total, with just four completions.

For comparison, that’s fewer attempts than in seasons 10 and 11. But more than season 12.

Take a look back at who attempted the Mega Wall during the five nights of the Qualifiers, and who was successful.
