so I've just been going back through FF7 for nostalgia and am utterly stuck. I have no idea what im doing wrong but when going up to get an item I have been unable to find the path i took to get up.

cloud shows up at two and im only able to get up to arrow 1. i need to get back down to 3 but i just can't seem to do it. any suggestions? am i missing something?

From what I remember, whenever there is a path that disappears from view and shifts direction, the actual direction you have to move Cloud or whoever in is changed, usually inverted. This often catches me out too so I know how you feel.

Looking at the map from my FFVII strategy guide though (really a screenshot with arrows on it), from 1, head back in the opposite direction. Cloud should disappear from view for a moment and loop around to 2. From here, head towards the screen along that lit area between 2 and 3. This doubles back towards 3. Here, Cloud will disappear again and head to 3.

If you still can't find the path, all I can suggest is to try pushing the D pad in successive directions and eventually you'll find the right way.

Hopefully this hasn't been too confusing.

Would pressing the 'select' button on your controller (or the PC equivalent if you are not running on a PlayStation) if you have not already, be useful?

I am going out of my mind here. I can go back and forth from 1 and 2 easily. I've moved in every possible direction while I'm behind the mountain and i just can't get down. I have pushed select and it shows me where I am but not the paths. Ahh this is so frustrating.

Doesn't going left from 2 take you down? Could be wrong it's been a while.
