7: Perilous Peak

First, kill the beasts when they are unprepared. Get up to the second stage, the elevator stage. Watch out. If you jump in the wrong spot, you will lose one whole life. It is a glitch. Proceed.

Unfortunately, huge snowballs are in your way. Do not try to shoot them- jump over them and hide. If the ball touches even the slightest point away from your face you will lose one-fourth health. Get to the places where the snowball can not reach you, then you will find, slowly, the source of the snowballs. Proceed.

10: Mount Neverest

20?cb=20120317190109 Incomplete section. You can help by adding missing info.

Mount Neverest is the final level. At the top of the mountain is the second and final boss in the game. The boss arena consists of two platforms on the left and right sides of the room, and icicles on the ceiling that do not fall down when the Climber walks under them.

The final boss getting shot

To defeat the boss, the climber needs to shoot her grappling gun at it. Doing this will cause its eye to pop out and the icicles to fall from the ceiling until the eye is back in the boss.

When the eye is out, the climber needs to jump on it. After the eye is jumped on, the climber cannot jump on it again. After the eye is in the boss, the climber can repeat this process until it is dead. The cave door will open when the boss is dead, allowing the climber to leave to the end of the level.
