Hint/spoiler only read this if your stuck

WATER LADDER place it only any side and pick it back up and place it do that until your all the way up. Beat this in seconds.

Good Map! could use some harder parts of the map like challenges or less items, but well made! Smart use of the different ways to get up. Not too long and not too short either, depending on the way you make your way out. Maybe add some more ways out and make it a little bit more challenging.

I got to the top in about five minutes using the water. Good idea, but I guess I think a little too much outside the box. :)

It's cool. Bit easy.

This was way too easy, I escaped differant ways

1. Made cobble gen pillared up
2. blocked lava and dug under
3. used wood to pillar up
4. made ice into water and put in bucket and climbed up

I just climbed the side with water. I beat the map in under a minute. WAY too easy. at least make the tube go all the way to the height limit.

This map was way too easy you should make the tunnel longer and give less items to start.

Terrible map, creator made it in about 30 seconds. 0/10 rating from me, way too easy, spawns sqrewed up, and nothing at the top of the tube to tell you what was going on. Not to mention that this map is just simply a spinoff of other maps that are way better than this.

yeah... way too easy, I just took the ice, broke it, took it into the bucket and started climbing. Up there I just realised there's nothing to do.

Map was okay, wasn't too hard but definitely an interesting idea. I ended up just filling some of the lava around the tree with dirt, made dirt tools and carved up into a cave system. Kept going till I got to the surface. My favorite part was finding the tube and jumping to my death in the end lol.

I like this map. You really do have to use your brain and your logic of minecraft. A short but fun puzzling map.

Hey I really liked this map, it makes you use your brain! I didn't really need food though because you aren't moving around too much so the food bar doesn't really go down, but anyway I liked it (:
