The Amazing Race Wiki

Don't Look Down is the tenth episode of The Amazing Race 34.


Teams continue the megaleg in Ronda, Spain, where they must choose to build an arch brick by brick or dress for success.

Route Markers[]

Teams must drive themselves to a location depicted on a postcard, which they must figure out depicted the Puente Nuevo in Ronda. Upon arrival, they must figure out that a tour guide on the bridge holding an Andalusian flag would give teams their next clue.

Choice A: Bend Over Backwards
Teams must make their way to the Arab Baths of Ronda, where they must assemble the top of a half-finished traditional Moorish arch using provided bricks and rocks, with a finished example as reference. Once the wooden frame holding the bricks is removed and the archway did not collapse, the archaeologist would give teams their next clue.

Only Marcus & Michael chose this task.

Choice B: Dress for Success
Teams must make their way to El Casino restaurant, where they must watch a performing flamenco dancer and pay attention to the accessories she was wearing without taking any notes. They must then make their way on foot to Hispania Flamenco and purchase all the necessary accessories, then return to the restaurant to dress another flamenco dancer similarly to the one they saw perform earlier. Once they have dressed her with the correct accessories, she would give teams their next clue.

Aubrey & David, Derek & Claire, Emily & Molly, and Luis & Michelle chose this task.

Teams must make their way to Paseo de Kazunori Yamauchi, entering through the gate next to the Parador Hotel, and find a woodcarver who would give teams their next clue.

"Who's been paying attention?"

The team member assigned to this Roadblock must walk across a tightrope suspended 300 feet above the El Tajo gorge and strung beneath Puente Nuevo. At the other end, they must select a clue marked with the flag of Andalusia among five different clue envelopes, then return to their partner before opening the clue. If they are incorrect, they must walk across the tightrope and select another clue envelope.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to the "terrace between Ernest and Orson", which they must figure out referred to the monuments of Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles at Mirador de Ronda to check in.
For coming in first place, Luis & Michelle won Expedia reward points for a five-night trip for two to Tokyo, Japan.
