GameplayEdit

In this event, players will have to climb up a boulder wall as high as possible within ninety seconds. To start the event, they have to press   and   to grab the first grip. From this point on, they have to angle   to align a hand with a grip, let it go to make a hand move and then press   to make the hand stop, the aim being to make it stop directly above the grip. The more far the hand is from the boulder, the more grip energy the player will lose. There are also three special types of grips:

  • Blue grips acting as checkpoints.
  • Pink heart-shaped grips refilling the player's grip energy.
  • Rainbow-colored star-shaped grips allowing the player to perform a super move five times to climb the wall higher and faster by pressing   and   simultaneously when prompted.

The player can also rotate their free   to apply chalk and restore some grip energy.
