Hay Bale Pyramid

One of Tough Mudder’s “easiest” obstacles (if you can even call it that) is the Hay Bale Pyramid. A six-to-seven-story pyramid of bales of hay stacked on top of each other. To scale the first bale, you have to run and jump, burying your hands in straw and pulling yourself upwards. But we only say “easy” because Hay Bale Pyramid is mud-free, ice-free, and shock-free. Don’t count it out.

Hint: Straw hurts and it’ll scratch you raw. Grab gently when you’re reaching for the next bale if you can. Work in pairs to hoist and pull each other up.
