This page offers a guide on Il Piantissimo’s Crazy Climb, which is the second episode in Pianta Village.

Racing Il Piantissimo Again

In this episode, you’ll need to race Il Piantissimo again. To win this race, you’ll need to get to the flag at the top of the palm tree in less than 30 Seconds. The race follows the path through the village up towards the large palm tree, then you head up the tree to the flag on the platform. On the path up towards the village you’ll be able to get ahead a fair bit if you use Slip-Slide, which is when you use your spray nozzle and slide at the same time to get a speed boost. Don’t try to slip-slide up hills or up the palm tree as the slip-sliding doesn’t defy gravity!
