Part Two - "Jungle Descent"
High on a Hillside is a room. The description is "Just east of the mighty elephant's ribcage, the path begins to descend steeply. You are now about a hundred yards below the ribcage. The same violet creepers adorning the ribcage flower all around you. Below you to the west and south you can see a valley containing a stream, which appears to plunge into a ravine west of you. Farther west there is another ridge, rising to a bare stone slope. Jagged crags and sudden cliffs make up the view to the north and south." Instead of going up in High on a Hillside, try going east.
