God of War spiked column

Kratos climbing one of the spiked columns.

The spiked columns are a set of two spinning towers with blades attached to them, they are seen in the Underworld during the first game and must be climbed in order for Kratos to escape Hades.

The God of War Series

The spiked columns appear in Hades and must be traversed in order for Kratos to escape the Underworld via the hole dug by the Grave Digger. If Kratos is hit by one of the spinning blades, he will fall to the ground and thus have to climb the columns again.


  • The gold trophy 'You Got The Touch' is earned if Kratos climbs one of columns without getting hit.
