Terra Cave is the path that leads to the Mountain of Woe in 12,000 B.C. in Chrono Trigger. It's on the northern part of the Southern continent.


The Guru on Mt. Woe

Now in possession of Epoch, Crono's party returns to 12,000 B.C. where they head to Terra Cave. In talking to the people there, called the Earthbound Ones, Crono learns that Queen Zeal locked up the Guru of Life on the Mountain of Woe. So they head up the magic chain that tethers the floating mountain.

What Lies Beyond?

Crono's party returns to Terra Cave with Melchior after the Mountain of Woe collapses into the water.

Schala arrives with Janus to tell them that she has turned her back on Zeal. But then Dalton arrives and kidnaps her to take her back to Zeal.

Fearing that the Mammon Machine will awaken Lavos and bring destruction upon the world, Melchior gives Crono the Ruby Knife, the only weapon capable of destroying the machine.

Crono's party then takes the Skyways and Land Bridges back up to Zeal Palace.
