Mario starts off on some flat ground where he must head right. Over to the right, there is a ladder for him to climb. Then, he must jump left to grab onto a Vine, followed by the first Monkikki's tail until it reaches the second Monkikki's tail, then he must simply go across two vines to get to the platform. Then, Mario must climb two ladders to get up to the higher platform, where he must climb the ladder leading to three trapped Monkikki, where he must go right and pull the switch to free them. Then, he must grab onto one of the Monkikki's tails to ride it across to get over to a platform above some Spikes, which are impossible to get past from underneath the platform. Mario must go to the lever and pull it to the right to activate the bridge and open the door, then he must get a Monkikki onto the bridge, then pull the lever to the left to deactivate the bridge, causing the Monkikki to fall onto the platform. This allows him to get back across, but he must first pull the lever to the right again to reopen the door. Mario must ride the Monkikki's tail across to the left, then he must go back. Once he is back he must go back to the ladder leading to the open door and climb it so he can get to the key and grab it. Once he has grabbed the key he must go to the door to end the level.
