Haud's "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Chasm"
First off, head to (K-9). You will be on the easternmost side of the mountain, almost at the lower corner. You'll come to a point where there will be a ramp on either side of you, if you are facing the mountain. Take the left one, heading South. Proceed up a few steps and you'll reach a fork. Head to the right (North). You should be heading upwards now. Next, you'll hit another fork, on one side (left) is a crack in the wall, the other is a path. Head to the left (South, towards the crack). Proceed a bit further and you'll come to another split. Head north, taking the path heading upwards. At the next intersection, keep straight continuing North. You'll reach a spout, but it'll go down in a few seconds. Continue ahead, walking over the giant bone, still moving Northwards.
Now, you'll come to a dark black spout. This will not die down. At this point, fall off to the side (East). You'll then land on a platform directly below. Head North a bit, and you'll see this walkway ends quickly. Fall down, heading North still, however, and not fall to the right (east) like you did before.
If you did this all right, you should be heading upwards and North. YOu'll soon hit another intersection, but ignore it; head North still. You'll quickly hit another spout, and this one will not die either. So, you guessed it, fall down to the right (east) again. Don't fall too far. You want to fall on the platform DIRECTLY below, and not all the way down. If you did it right, you'll be facing north where the walkway continues, and right behind you, the platform will end. Continue North.
After you turn a corner, you'll see this massive bone heading upwards. To your left, you should see that the platform begins to rise. Take it upwards and move towards the bone. IF you don't go upwards, the platform will soon end, and you'll have nowhere to go, but down. Bad. Climb the bone, continuing upwards. At the top of the spiny bone thing, continue West now, moving upwards. You'll hit another intersection, but keep West. The platform will end, and you'll see the top. Too bad you can't get there yet ;-). Fall down to the platform, heading West. Make sure to fall at the END of the platform. If you did it right, a rock should be BEHIND you, not in front. If not, start over ^^. Head West. You'll encounter another spout, but it will disappear soon.
Once again, you'll see the top, but you still can't get there. Fall down again, to the North. Same as before, fall at the platform's END. If you did it right, a rock will be behind you. Head West. This path will wind a bit, and you'll cross over another spine/bone structure as well. Soon, you will hit another perma-spout. Fall to the North again onto the platform below. Do not fall on the ground. You'll be on a platform that will be VERY close to the ground. Don't worry, you're doing fine ^^.
Follow this platform around, heading in the general South direction being careful not to accidentally fall off. When you hit another spine, which is rather short, you'll see a path heading upwards. Take it. You should be heading Northwards and up now. At the top, head to the right (South) towards the crack in the wall.
You'll quickly hit another path heading upwards. Take it. At the top, ignore the path heading South and continue North. You'll hit a spout, but it will disappear soon. Follow the path over 2 sets of bones. After the bones and heading upwards a bit, the path will split.
To the north, you will see another set of bones, so head North. At the end of these bones, you'll hit a dead end. Continue up a bit, and you'll fall onto a path below you. If done right, you will have a rock behind you, and you will be facing Westwards. You'll soon hit another spout, but this one will disappear and when it does continue North. Now, just follow this path up a bit more and TA-DA! You're at the top.
While this looks like a lot, it's really about a 5-10 minute walk up if you don't screw up and you know how to do it. Of course, there are a lot of falls, twists, and turns. I would recommend trying yourself first before using this to see if you can do it; it's a fun challenge in the game. The basic idea is "Head counterclockwise from the southeast corner until you are on the direct opposite side from where you started. Then head clockwise. Fall to the path below you if you hit a perpetual spout."
