Tyrolean Traverse

This obstacle falls into the extremely rare category. The Tyreolean Traverse is a rope suspended across a body of water that you must make your way across and hit the bell at the end.  After hitting the bell at the end you will drop into the water and swim out.

Most people will skip this and next time I see it I would like to measure the time it takes people to get across vs. the time it take to do 30 burpees.  Until then see below and choose which method works best for you:
