Castaways must toss two balls into an overhead track and navigate through tripwires to catch the ball before it hits the ground. Once both balls have been caught, they must dig their way under a log with their two balls before accomplishing a final task.
When the challenge debuted in Edge of Extinction as a Reward Challenge, the final portion was taken from the Matt Finish challenge, in which the castaways had to land their two balls on a narrow perch. In a race to land their final ball on the perch, Gavin Whitson was ultimately able to edge out Aurora McCreary and Victoria Baamonde to win reward.
In Winners at War, the challenge was used as an Immunity Challenge, where the final portion was a slide puzzle depicting the season's logo. In a race between most of the tribe, Nick Wilson managed to solve the puzzle first, winning immunity and two Fire Tokens.
The challenge was used as a Reward Challenge in 41, with the Edge of Extinction set up being adapted for tribal use. Each tribe member had to toss a ball one at a time into the overhead track. After all four members caught their ball, they must dig under a log, then land each ball on a narrow perch. Luvu suffered a blowout defeat after Heather Aldret struggled with catching her ball, allowing Ua, then Yase, to cruise to victory.
