A Link to the Past Glitches - Death Mountain Ascent
- Perform Death Mountain Descent save for the final jump into Dark World. Instead, in the lower portion of the pits area, use the Magic Mirror.
- In the Light World, walk to the east end of the large U-shaped rock just south of the bridge. Walk against the eastern upper end.
- Link will jump backwards, back onto the within-bounds area.
Reaching eastern Death Mountain normally requires the Hammer (to pound a barrier of stakes just after the ropebridge in the upper area) or the Hookshot (to jump over the hole in the broken bridge in the lower area). This glitch allows faster access to the area, which houses several tresure chests with Rupees, Turtle Rock and a few Pieces of Heart. (Getting your hands on any of the latter two requires Titan's Mitt however, and accessing that requires the Hammer.)
