Da Vine Climb is a Donkey Kong minigame found in Mario Party 5. The name is a play on "divine climb."


This is one of the three Donkey Kong minigames. It consists of climbing vines and collecting Bananas within a ten second limit. The main obstacle is the several spiders located in the vines. Spiders stun players for a few second, and this subtracts from most of their minigame time.

This is a Coin-collecting minigame like the other Donkey Kong minigames. Each Banana awards one, two, or three Coins, while Banana Bunches awards the player five, ten, or fifteen Coins.

The background features a wooden treetop house, which belongs to Donkey Kong. He can be seen climbing a ladder and pounding his chest after he reaches the treehouse's balcony. Da Vine Clumb takes place in a jungle, which is a staple for DK minigames.

Any player who has collected at least one Banana wins the mini-game. They do their victory pose with Donkey Kong at the end.
