I appeared to be stuck again, but soon unstuck myself and found a new route. Retrieved some boxing gloves for a kangaroo (of course), who now carries me around and can jump over holes and stuff. Nice.
Opened a floodgate, allowing access to the next dungeon. Except, I can’t get in yet as it isn’t summer, and I can’t make it summer. Off to Subrosia (the volcano place) again, only via a different entrance. Dug up some ore (no rupees in Subrosia) to buy a piece of heart. I need a “star shaped ore” now to buy a ribbon, I think.
