From D&D Wiki
Tight Rope Walk
You enter a room that has a 10 foot deep pit with 2 wooden pegs on either side. A rope suddenly appears, tied to the two pegs, spanning the pit. A sign in front of the pit reads: "The rope must be traversed from end to end four times in order to get the prize".

Description: A total of 4 successful passes across the rope must be made. Each pass requires a single balance check. Failure indicates that the character falls into the 10 foot deep pit. They take damage based on the room challenge and the dungeon EL. A slow fall ability negates damage by 3 per 5 EL for every 10 feet of slow fall (to a maximum of 15 fall damage reduced). If a character falls down, they may climb back up the ladder as a full-round action.
