From the Cabin, head north. Here, climb up. When you reach a cliff, tap square repeatedly to get Cloud's body temperature around 37-38 degrees. Just climb up all the way until you get inside the cave. Also note that this is a 1-time only area. Any treasure you miss here cannot be gotten again, ever. Same holds true for the enemy skill Trine. The Stilva enemy (looks like a red version of the Materia Keeper boss) has Trine, but also Magic Breath, an other enemy skill which is VERY powerful. Equip protective gear versus ice, or fire, or lightning and you should be safe from the attack. Still, very useful to learn.

(Perfect Game Note 18:)
In Gaea's Cliff, you must morph Stilva's or Evilheads into 99 Holy Torches. Or, if you plan to use the W-Item trick later on, just 1. Good luck! Also note that it is possible to get Holy Torches from the Battle Square Stilva later on, but that will take much more time if you're not planning on using the W-item trick.

In the icy cave, head north to the next area. Here, go left, then south to the previous area, except you're on the upper level now. Head right over the ice bridge, and walk further to the right through the wall, to reach a secret room holding a Ribbon. Give it to someone, as it's good. Head north and grab the Javelin from the chest on the right. Then proceed through the doorway on the left.


Did you know you can grab a second Ribbon from a chest here? Now you do.

In this next screen, walk through the tunnel to reach a boulder. Kick it and it'll remove an obstacle. Backtrack to that area and go through the tunnel that was previously blocked. Head to the exit on the right, and from the next screen also head to the exit on the right to get outside.

You'll have to climb up like before, except this time around there are dead ends. The first time given a choice go up, the second time head right. The rest is rather straightforward. You can also encounter Marlboro's on any outside area in Gaea's Cliffs. They usually just attack with Frozen Beam, but they also rarely use Bad Breath, an enemy skill that causes many bad status effects. Learn it, as it's useful! May take some time though .. also equip your Ribbon(s).

In the next cave, save your game at the save point if you wish, then go to the right. Here outside, walk around the right to a ledge inside with many icicles.  First, grab the Fire Armlet from the chest on the right. Every time you walk to an icicle you have to battle it along with 4 bats. A single casting of Beta does the trick. Don't jump down just yet, first beat them all so they all come down.  Grab the 'Last Elixir' from the chest on the left and exit/re-enter the area so you can jump down (it's faster than walking back).

Now you can grab the Speed Source from the chest on the left. Don't forget to grab the Elixir in the lower right corner of the room, in a chest. Also, more importantly, you can get across to continue your journey. Back outside, grab the 'Enhance Sword' from the chest, and continue the path until you get to climb up more (yay). Just choose to go up all the time and you'll reach the next cave.  Here, touch the pool near the save point to get fully healed. This is a very nice training spot if you want to gain levels. You can also encounter Blue Dragons here, which are rather strong, but always drop a Dragon Armlet, a decent piece of equipment. Before you head to the next hallway, equip your party with the Aurora Armlet/Fire Ring, Fire Armlet, and the remaining person with Dragon Armlet and a Fire Ring or Ice Ring.

When you're almost at the end of the next hallway, you'll get attacked by a Schizo! Meaning, a big, badass two headed dragon.. yipes!


This two-headed dragon is an extremely ferocious beast that packs quite a punch. Make sure you use your best attacks and steal the Protect Ring from the Right hald of Schizo.

|Strategy: First of all, I suggest stealing the Protect Ring from Schizo       |
|(Right). It's a great accessory. Start the battle with Big Guard. Schizo is a |
|rather tough boss, but if you come well equipped (with protection from Ice,   |
|Fire, Lighting and Earth) it shouldn't be so hard. Alexander does high damage,|
|as does Bahamut, Odin, Aqualung, and Comet. Pound away, keep your defenses up,|
|your HP high, and hope nothing goes wrong. Be prepared for his Final Attacks  |
|when a head dies, as they inflict 1000 damage to everyone. On a side note, I |
|found it useful to press Select during the battle to have the extra info menu |
|come up, so I knew which side was right/left.                                 |
|                                                                              |
|Alternatively, you could just keep on casting Magic Hammer on both heads until|
|they run out of MP/Skill Power. The only attack left will be their Final      |
|Attack. Cheap, but effective.                                                 |
'------------------------------------------------------------------------------'

You could head back to heal up/save, or just continue ahead. On the next screen, just climb your way up to the Crater.

In this page with Gaea's cliff, you said
Did you know you can grab a second Ribbon from a chest here? Now you do.
How do I get that second ribbon? Is it in the same room as the one previously mentioned?
