Nestled in the shadow of Halo's walls of ice, The Climb is just as inhospitable as its icy neighbour. Sweltering pools of lava bubble on the region's surface from an active volcano, immediately dissolving the bodies of any unlucky enough to fall in. Hellhounds, Lials, massive rats and other creatures scour the surface for food and find shelter in the intricate cave systems at night. There are natural wonders here, though, for those brave enough to find them; hot springs, caverns crafted from diamond, and even underground pools rumoured to have healing properties.
Not much can survive the warmth and harsh climate of the Climb, but those that do are vicious and often small. Insects of a sort, like scorpions, spiders, fire ants, and centipedes can all be found, as well as smaller reptiles like poisonous snakes and lizards.
