Agility course[edit | edit source]

If you run out of food any time and do not wish to risk losing your items, you could un-equip the penguin suit, resulting in being caught and stunned, but otherwise returned to where Larry is on the Iceberg.

  • Climb down the steps and into the water.
  • Avoid the moving ice in the water.
  • Climb the stepping stone at the end.
  • Jump across the next stones until you reach an ice platform.
  • After you manage to cross, continue on the path until you come to a shelf with icicles on it. Use the tread-softly option to get across. You have to repeat this several times at each shelf. If you fail, you will be hit taking a small amount of damage.
  • Next, you have to climb up the ice using a 'Cross Ice' option. This can be very annoying, as you lose 2 hitpoints each time you fail, and the failure rate is surprisingly high. If you have only the minimal Agility — level 30, for example — a small amount of food may help.
  • After that, you have a small cutscene of you sliding down a hill.
  • Talk to Agility Instructor.
  • Unequip the penguin suit and talk to Larry.
