  • Dangerous Heights

Recommended Equipment[edit | edit source]

Tips / Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Watch your step and mind the Yetis; dangerous falls are everywhere, and the Yeti's knockback makes this cave perilous.
  • There is an "easter egg" of a frozen Wolf chasing a Dodo in a wall of transparent ice hidden in this cave (see Gallery).
  • There is a leviathan of a Rex frozen in a wall of ice.
  • To reach the Artifact, enter the cave and go to the open room. There is a ramp leading up on your right that will lead to some metal spawns. Go to your left and down the ramp there. At the bottom of the ramp, turn right (almost a complete U turn) and follow the wall on your right. Follow the large tunnel that passes the frozen T-Rex. The tunnel will lead to a ramp up, which will lead to a small ice bridge. The artifact is on that bridge.
