This technique allows the user to cause multiple cone shaped spikes to rise up from the ground in order to deal piercing damage against a target. When performing this technique to its fullest extent the user will exercise their skill with the Earth Release in order to bind their feet to the ground with earthen hands, which rise from below the user and grasp their ankles. This facilitates the user's connection to the earth and increases the potential of the technique. After this step the use must slam their palms onto the ground, channeling their earth chakra at the same time. It is then that the user can cause numerous spikes of earth to rise anywhere within a ten meter radius from the user's position. Furthermore, as long as the practitioner remains connected to the earth in this manner they can continue to form spikes, though more spikes obviously require additional chakra input. It should be noted that the size of the spikes can range according to the user's will, and that with incredible chakra control smaller spikes can be projected from the ground towards intended targets.

On at least one occasion it has been demonstrated that the connection to the ground and palm slam can be bypassed. Though, this variation limited the size of the spikes formed and still required the user to be in contact with the ground.
