The Graveyard of the Giants is a cold, icy cavern with many icy walls and floors. The icy floors will reduce your traction on the ground, making it difficult to navigate, and as Elder Xelpud warns, there is nothing you can do about that. The icy walls cannot be grappled easily, you must move fast or Lemeza will fall.
