As the level's name suggests, many Kremlings are in this level. They swing from pegs and Peg Boards which Donkey Kong must use to progress. Flipflaps also appear in the third section. Many obstacles are in the level, including tires, crates, barrels, rocks, and Floating Mines. Spinning Pegs appear in the level's Bonus Level.
The level begins on a wooden platform with some pegs above it. Donkey Kong must use a group of pegs to climb over a wall of tires. The first five pegs have bananas on them, and barrels stand higher up. As the Kong continues, they must break some barrels to progress further. When he reaches the top set of pegs, a Kritter can be found to the right swinging on a lone peg. A pathway of pegs leading downwards along the other side of the tires is next to the foe, with barrels all the way down it. The Kong must travel downwards while getting past the barrels to reach a set of pegs that lead to an upward pathway of rectangular peg boards. A single peg moves along the side of the peg boards with a Kritter on it, and bananas cover the boards as well. As the primate climbs the area of peg boards, barrels block his way. Eventually, though, a Kong can get onto a solid platform at the top of the area. Peg boards are placed above it with four barrels on them. A Kritter spinning on a peg is farther to the left, and it can be used to enter a Bonus Barrel on a small, nearby platform. Outside of the Bonus Level, Donkey Kong can continue to the top-right and go on a platform leading to the second section.
In this section, rocks must be used to break ? Barrels for more Peg Boards to appear. The first rock is located under two pegs. A peg with three bananas around it is above, while a barrel floats nearby. If this barrel is broken, a trio of peg boards appear below, creating a path to travel on to reach a group of five pegs. If the barrel placed above them is destroyed, a peg board and a pair of pegs appear next to a nearby rock, which can be thrown at a barrel above it to make more peg boards appear to the west. A Kritter on some pegs is below a barrel containing a Banana Bunch. Using the Peg Boards, the Kong can climb near the top of the area, where another rock is near a few pegs. The rock can be thrown right to break another ? Barrel, which is surrounded by mines. When the barrel is hit, Peg Boards appear above the mines, and the Kongs can climb the Peg Boards to reach a platform leading to the third area.
In the third and final section, the Kong must climb up numerous moving Peg Boards which come in all sizes. Aside from Kremlings, the Kongs also encounter Flipflaps in the section. The first few rows of them have tires above them, making it harder to reach the above peg boards. A pathway of peg boards are at the end of the rows that lead up to the second set of rows. A Kritter swings on a peg boards on the way up. Flipflaps also fly around the area. After the Kong swings to the west on the next row of peg boards, he can find a second path of peg boards leading upwards and another Kritter on one of them. They lead up to some smaller peg boards that have mines surrounding them. The first pair of mines float above a small, blue board of pegs, and two others are placed parallel to each other in a vertical angle. A silver medal stands between the two mines. One last small peg board is after the mines, being followed by a platform with the exit sign on it. The level is complete when the primate lands on the platform by the sign.
When Donkey Kong reaches the end of the first section, he must go left until he finds a Bonus Barrel on a small platform, located in the northwest corner of the area. In the Bonus Level, Donkey Kong has 50 seconds to collect bananas in the air by flying from Spinning Pegs. Donkey Kong quickly collect all the bananas by going to the top and falling to the bananas. After collecting all the bananas, the Crystal Coconut appears on a small platform at the top-right.
