Cave 2 has a climbing entrance inside the Main Cannibal Village. There is a second entrance to the north near a smaller Cannibal Village on the side of a lake. The first time the player loses health completely and loses consciousness, they will wake up in this cave tied by their feet to the ceiling, with their plane axe within arm's reach on the ground nearby.
