Part 2 of Mystic Forest#5-4
The second area

The level opens with a cinematic showing Mario climbing up ropes, getting attacked by a Kōmori, and falling.

In the first area, the player has to use a Springboard to get up onto a platform above, and then ride the upward moving lift that will disappear once it reaches the end of its rail. The player then has to use another Springboard to reach the ropes above, and climb and jump across them to the right side of the area while avoiding the Kōmori. Once the player reaches the locked door, they need to use the lifts to progress downward and press the blue Color Switch at the bottom. The player now needs to return to the start of the level by crouching on the conveyor belt to move under the wall, and use the Springboard to reach a Direction Switch they need to press. Now the player needs to grab the Key, throw it onto the conveyor and follow it, then grab it again and use the lifts to reach the locked door.

In the second area, there are several rotating Cannons that fire Cannonballs at set intervals. The player needs to climb and jump up several ropes while avoiding these Cannonballs; on the left of the area is a 1-Up Mushroom and the path to continue is on the right. In the top half of the area, there are also Kōmori that the player needs to avoid as they progress to the Mini-Mario on the left.
