"Who has a builder's eye?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must find one of eight stones out of 150 that would fit into the rock wall at the fort being rebuilt after the Croatian War of Independence. Once it is completely built, the stonemason would hand them their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to the fort's roof and ride a tandem zipline down to Fort Bokar to receive their next clue.

Choice A: Short & Long
Teams must rappel down the walls of Fort Bokar and then scale another section of wall on a rope ladder. Then, they must make their way on foot a longer distance through the confusing old quarter streets to find their next clue.

Kynt & Vyxsin and TK & Rachel chose this task.

Choice B: Long & Short
Teams must ride a tandem zipline from the fort, swim to floating platforms, then row a fishing boat around the city walls. When they reached a flagged area, they must make their way on foot a shorter distance through the streets to find their next clue.

Azaria & Hendekea, Nathan & Jennifer, Nicolas & Donald, and Ron & Christina chose this task.

Teams must take a taxi to Stone Cross in Fort Imperial to check in. For coming in first, Ron & Christina won a 12.5-foot catamaran for each racer.
