The Shaft

This is based on a trick I discovered by accident. To climb to the top you're going to have to use funnels the hard way, and then the even harder way.

Update 4-20-2014: Fixed easy reset, thanks to m9so.
Update 5-13-2014: Fixed two minor shortcuts

Ah! That's no fun if the second part is easy to reset. My favorite part of this is the adrenaline rush from getting all the way through the second part without messing up.

I think see your shortcut; it's easy enough to fix. Thanks for playing!

Fun! The first part of the climb was harder the second, because when an error had to get up again, and in the second half in the fall easily climb back.

Весело! Первая часть подъемы была труднее второй, т.к. при ошибке приходилось подниматься заново, а во второй половине при падении легко подняться обратно.

Really cool funnel challenge! I already worked with funnels this way, but never thought about using reversed funnel for that, it makes the thing even more challenging :p
If you are interested, here is my map working with this mechanism : Funnel Master .

LOL yeah, buff00n you were right!
In this map, you took it to the extreme with this technique, but it was fun anyway! #F4F :)
@question man6: I think you may have to try my " Exchange " if this was very fun to you. It's a bit more challenge with an added puzzle, but basicly the same technique. And I just made an update thanks to buff00n, to make it a bit easier.

Thanks! My only complaint is that you don't drift with the funnel when you're pressed up against the wall. But I guess that just adds to the challenge of the first part.

Loved this chamber. I never thought there would be a chamber like this where you use the funnel like that. I've always known how, but I've never been in a situation where you actually need to use this method in order to solve the puzzle. Great work!

Very very cool, LMAO!!! Keep it up :) F4F#

Thanks. You can actually do the same trick with light bridges, too, but it's less fun.

Great puzzle. Innovative concept behind that. Hint to the player: The hitbox of the funnels are larger than they seem. #f4f

To everyone, add me as a friend, if you want to play each others chambers.
