The Earth Release: Earth Crushing Spikes Technique was invented by a shinobi of Konohagakure no Sato, Hayai Sarutobi of the Sarutobi Clan. Hayai developed this technique while he was training with his father in the mountains. Hayai channels earth-natured chakra through the ground and causes an uprising of spiked earth that can impale a target of his choice. When Hayai is in Monkey Sage Mode, he can summon a huge forest of earth spikes, similar to Kimimaro Kaguya's Dance of the Seedling Fern.
