Rockface Chase is the twenty-fourth level in Donkey Kong Land III and the sixth and last regular level of the Great Ape Lakes. It takes place on a cliffside and it appears at the northeast part of the world map.
Rockface Chase is similar to an earlier level, Vertigo Verge, which also takes place at a cliffside. In Rockface Chase, the Kongs must climb up the cliff during a rainfall. They must use Barrel Cannons and both vertical and horizontal ropes to make their way across. There are some groups of bananas that are shaped in the direction that the Kongs must go. There are many Buzzes in the level. After the Star Barrel, the Kongs encounter many horizontal ropes with Klasps. Some offbeat paths lead to Bear Coins, a Bonus Barrel, or the DK Coin.
At the beginning of the level, the Kongs make their way up a small ledge, using a wooden platform, and then start to run down a large, slanted path. At the bottom of this path, they find a set of ropes to climb. As they climb up these ropes, they will need to watch out for some explosive Klasps. On the next level of the rocky landscape, they can find the letter K. Farther on, after defeating some enemies, they should find a platform to use to get a grip on another rope. It guides them to a higher area, where they can find the letter O. Once they reach this part of the level, they jump into a nearby barrel and blast to a high-up set of ropes. Jumping up the ropes one-by-one, they soon reach a steep, upward pathway to another wooden platform. It helps them reach a short rope that aid them in head up to another area. There, the group finds a few small alcoves around some Kobbles. They eventually find the Star Barrel.
About halfway through the level, the apes fall down from some ropes and platforms to land in a barrel. It blasts them through a long chain of barrels and then on a wooden platform above the letter N. Walking a little farther, they should spy another rope that they need to climb while avoiding some Kopters. After hopping up some platforms nearby, they make their way into a barrel that shoots them onto a high tightrope. They should move across the long rope to find another platform. This platform helps them reach a set of ropes, occupied by several Klasps. The Kongs need to carefully climb along the rope and travel up to an arrow, created by many bananas. If they scurry to the left at this point, they can find another area with ropes. Making their way up a small, wooden platform to reach the highest point of the mountain, they reach a flagpole. Touching the flagpole ends the level.
