Buck will be joining you here, and will fully heal your Pokemon after each battle. His Claydol is pretty useful too. Also, note that you cannot use Rock Climb, or your bike while Buck is with you. Now, this part of the mountain is large and somewhat confusing, though I'll do what I can to explain it. Your destination is to the north of the entrance to this area. But you'll have to weave around the western portion of this place to get here.

Start off by making your way to the northwest corner, via the lower level to reach the TM50 OVERHEAT. You can pick up a CALCIUM in a trench at the center of the area. After getting that item, return to Krystal and Ray's position. From there, continue further north down the next ladder. Follow the path all the way down to a rock, and examine it to get a REVIVE.

Go past Chelsey and Sterling at the southeast-most portion of the area, to find an IRON BALL in a trench there. Now, navigate to the northeast section of this place and head right. Defeat both Trainers. Check the rocks to the left of the old man to get an IRON. Proceed up the ladder and head left for a MAX REVIVE.

Retuen to the northeast section, go down a little bit then left. Climb up the ladder. Continue northwest down the next ladder. Just follow the path haeding west, battling 2 pairs of Trainers along the way. When you see a ladder heading down, take it and go right along the trench. Push the boulder out of the way and head up the ladder into the next area.

After Buck leaves, use an Escape Rope to get off the mountain. Go back to the Survival Area. There, go into the house to the left of the Pokemon Center. Talk to Buck. Buy plenty of Ultra Balls at the Poke Mart too. Make your way back to the Stark Mountain afterwards.

You should be able to get the remaining treasures in Area 2, now that you can use Rock Climb. The items include a MAX ELIXIR and a NUGGET. Head for the cave where Buck got the stone. You should find Heatran waiting there. Save your game first then talk to it

| Legendary Pokemon Heatran                                      |
----------------------------------------------------------------
| Heatran is a fire-type Pokemon, so avoid using Grass and Ice   |
| Pokemons in this battle. It is weak against Ground and Water   |
| attacks though. Heatran knows Lava Plume, which can leave      |
| Burns if it hits. Bring in a Pokemon that has high Defense and |
| Special Defense (like Dialga) and hope that your target only   |
| uses Scary Face and Iron Tail on you. Start throwing Ultra or  |
| Dusk Balls when Heatran has very little HP left.               |
