-1- Climb the cliffs

The first stage has many cliffs, and three Water Rods are scattered around the area. First, throw one hero up to a higher ledge to find the first Water Rod. Use the Water Rod to create pillars of water to give the remaining two heroes access to the higher levels. Continue using the Water Rod to travel higher until you have found all three Water Rods.

Continue climbing the mountain to find three floor switches guarded by Moblins. The floor switches are on raised platforms, but you can reach them using the Water Rod. Use the Water Rod to raise each hero onto the platforms, defeat the Moblins, and step on the floor switches. When all three floor switches are pressed, a bridge to the Triforce Gateway will appear.

-2- Create a path with the Water Rod

You need to activate two crystal switches to open the gate. One crystal switch is located to the left of the gate; the second crystal switch is located to the right of the gate. Use the Water Rod to create a path across the lake to reach each crystal switch.

When both crystal switches are activated, use the Water Rod to create another path to the gate and continue north.

The next area contains three floor switches, but they are blocked by streams of fire. Use the Water Rod to block the fire. Then, quickly step on all three floor switches to open the way forward.

The last portion of the stage is another lake. Use the Water Rod to cross the lake, but watch out for the rotating streams of fire. Cross the lake and enter the Triforce Gateway.

-3- Destroy the cracked block

Use the Water Rod to travel north across the area, but stop to defeat all of the enemies along the way. The Triforce Gateway in the third stage will not activate until all of the enemies are defeated.

At the northern edge of the area, the gate leading to the Triforce Gateway is closed.

Activate two crystal switches to open the gate. The crystal switches will close if you approach them, so throw bombs (taken from the nearby bomb flowers) at the crystal switches to activate them from a distance.

When the gate opens, the way forward is again blocked, but this time by a cracked stone block. Have two heroes create a path across the lake using the Water Rod, and have the third hero pick up a bomb flower and carry it across the lake. Throw the bomb at the cracked stone block to destroy it. Then, enter the Triforce Gateway.

-4- Miniboss: Moblins and Keeleon

The final stage is a battle against Moblins and Keeleon on a waterfall. Have all three heroes step on the large floor switch to begin the battle.

Use the Water Rod to travel across the small platforms scattered along the waterfall. Defeat the moblins with sword strikes and use a two-hero totem to defeat the bomb-spitting Keeleon.

When all of the enemies are defeated, the Triforce Gateway will appear.
