The Sims 4 Snowy Escape
Mountain Climb & Mt. Komorebi Summit
Climbing the Mountain involves Fitness and Rock Climbing Skills
Snowy Escape Guides
The Sims 4 Snowy Escape features a new type of event players can throw: the Mountain Excursion. This allows players to plan an expedition to Mt. Komorebi's summit. While not particularly challenging, there is some advice I can give that will help to keep your Sims safe and increase your chances of getting a gold on the event.
Prepare to Climb
Planning the Excursion event to climb the mountain.
In order to summit Mt. Komorebi, you explicitly require each Sim to have level 6 Rock Climbing, because the final wall is so high. Therefore, your expedition leader and any Sims that come with you should already be trained in Rock Climbing Skill.
Because starting the event will make you start at the Onsen on Mt. Komorebi, you need to first purchase Climbing Gear using a computer. Find this in the Order menu. Each kit costs $450 Simoleons. These actually feature a durability system, so using one for a very long time will require you to purchase new climbing gear or else be using inferior equipment.
At the Bits and Baubles vending machine, your Sims can purchase insect repellents and creams to heal any wounds from attacks. If you like, you can check the boards you use to hike to see a wildlife report. This will tell you which creatures are more likely to attack your Sims while climbing the mountain.
How to Climb Mt. Komorebi
Get every Sim in range of the signs and you can move on to the next part of the climb.
Use your Sim's phone and select the Mountain Excursion social event. Your Sim will be the leader, and you must select at least one other Sim in order to do this. It's more than a little annoying you cannot simply go to the top by yourself but this is treated more as a mini game rather than some serious test of survival.
Equipment Checks & Objectives
Tents can be used for sleeping off injuries and other bad moodlets.
Equipping your Sims' climbing gear and checking the other Sims' readiness are one of several objectives you'll have on your way to the top. Assuming you want a gold, doing these simple things before heading out will give you progress without taking up precious time when you're on the mountain. I say 'precious' mainly because you might have good weather, and have that weather change the longer you're on the mountain.
While on the mountain, you might find tents and 'pee bushes' to relieve your Sims in. Keep an eye out for berries you can pick. If you don't get lucky, you might need a tent of your own which can be placed from the inventory to give your Sims shelter from a blizzard. Rock Climbing skill features protein and energy bars at high levels that can be made. See Rock Climbing Guide for recipes.
Actually Climbing & Injuries
The final wall is about 2x the height of the normal walls, so you'll know it when you see it. It's the final hurdle before you get to the cave, so you can tell the wall I'm talking about.
When your Sim falls while climbing, they can be injured. Climbing while injured not only increases the risk of failure, but can lead to a Sim's Death. Climbing Courageously is fast, but it should not be used on the big walls unless your Sim has high fitness.
Both Fitness and Rock Climbing factor into how well your Sim will do while climbing. Injuries and bad weather increase the risk of a fall. Climbing gear improves your odds. So, if your Sim is not injured, has climbing gear, and you use climb cautiously or normally, you'll be more likely to succeed.
The final wall requires your Sims have level 6 Rock Climbing skill and is the one instance where a Sim can die due to the great height of a fall. It's likely you'll get injured the first time, with a second attempt being deadly.
Sims can woohoo in the cave up on Mt. Komorebi, and you can explore it for collectibles.
Rewards & Finishing the Excursion
While the majority of your progress in climbing Mt. Komorebi comes from the 'move on' and getting to the final stage, you can do 5-10 of the objectives that come up (your choice) to help to guarantee a gold on the event which gives you a better reward trait and plaque.
The Mountaineer Reward traits (3 ranks) reflect the status you achieved when climbing Komorebi. On future excursions, you'll have better success at rock climbing and in other outdoor activities.
The final 'stage' of the excursion features the summit, which has a lot you can build on. It's nice up here above the clouds and builders will no doubt make some beautiful pictures from this location.
I'm not talking about the type that attack you, but rather the type that end your excursion despite you not completing it. I had a dumb TV Season Premiere holiday come up that killed my excursion and forced me to start over. I'm just putting it out there that you're not alone if this happens, and when it happens late in the excursion it can be incredibly frustrating.
