Inside the Crater

1 Hotfoot Crater Hammer the Pillar.png
Climb up onto the north platform, walk along the ledge on the west side and across the gold foil. Hammer the cracked mast several times to make it fall down, then walk across.
2 Hotfoot Crater Explode the Bob-ombs.png
Run along the path east away from the Paper Machos. When rocks block your path, lure the Bob-ombs toward them, and let them explode, destroying the rocks.
3 Hotfoot Crater Run Away from Goombas.png
Near the top, the camera will change, so you'll be running west instead of east. Reach the spot where Bowser is waiting.
