The cadets are met with Bat Eyes and Capparwires as they scale the mountain path. The weather is a blizzard that saps the cadets' health whenever they are moving. The cadets can stand still and not lose HP, or take shelter in a cave.
- Snow-Swept Slopes
One of the felled dominion legionaries has a Keycard and the cadets are attacked by a Snow Giant. The next area has more Capparwires and Snow Giants. It has two exits, one that leads into a cave and another blocked by a gate that requires a Keycard. The cave, Klimov Caverns, has another Keycard, as well as a Knowing Tag. There are no enemies in the cave.
- Mine Gate K-01
More Capparwires are met at the mine gate and at the north end of the area there is another Snow Giant. There is a special order for taking down the Snow Giant that yields a Shock Shield. There are three exits: one leads toward the objective, the western cave is a dead end full of monsters, and the eastern cave--a detour toward the objective--is where the cadets should head. The cavern has Bat Eyes and Capparwires, but continuing on leads to a Frozen Precipice.
- Frozen Precipice
The cadets face Bat Eyes and Ice Flan with an SO to keep fighting despite the blizzard that yields a Phoenix Pinion. There's a cave halfway up the slope with a Knowing Tag and a Fortified Ration/Combat Ration. Heading north up the mountain path leads to a Snow Giant. It is accompanied by Bat Eyes that come in two waves.
Entering the Klimov Caverns at the top finds a group of Ice Flan in a tight space. Heading through the other exit is where the cadets are supposed to go, but the player can take another route instead. Returning to the previous area and heading south finds another cave with Bat Eyes and Ice Flan. The cadets should head west to the Snow-swept Slopes that has Ice Bombs and Snow Giants. After defeating all three Snow Giants the cadets should continue north. There is also an item here, Strength Serum. South from here leads back to the Mine Gate K-01 where the cadets have already been with nothing but Ice Bombs and Bat Eyes to fight.
- Mine Gate K-02
The area is filled with Martinets and Panjandrums, neither of which drop phantoma. The gate to the north needs a Keycard, but the cadets should already have one. There is a recovery portal up the slope after the gate.
- Excavation Site
The cadets must defeat all enemies in this area. The SO is to defeat them in five minutes and completing it yields a Gold Anklet. The enemies include Martinets, Imperial Troopers and Airborne Troopers. Once the enemies are down the cadets can head for the gate, going east.
- Snow-Swept Slopes
The cadets have 10 minutes to get to the bottom of the map before the imperial transport team leaves. There are Imperial Troopers fighting a Snow Giant and Bat Eyes. The cadets can concentrate on the Snow Giant first. In the next area Imperial Troopers and Warriors fight Ice Bombs. The cadets can concentrate on the Warriors first.
There is a cave to the side with Ice Bombs and Bat Eyes inside. Given the time limit, the cadets can ignore it, but if they head inside they can find some Strength Serum from the end of the cave.
In the next area the cadets face Imperial Troopers and a Supersoldier with more appearing near the southern exit flanked by a Colossus. The cadets can concentrate on the Colossus. If the cadets head into the cave they find Capparwires and nothing else, so it can be ignored.
- Mine Gate K-03
After taking out the Imperial Troopers and Colossi the cadets can go through the gate. The cave here has nothing inside and can be ignored. Going through the gate stops the timer. On the Snow-Swept Slope after the gate there is a recovery portal.
- Supply Depot
There There will be three enemy waves before the final confrontation. The first and second waves contain Militesi Coeurls, Imperial Troopers and Supersoldiers. Upon clearing them, a Commanding Officer (Captain Matthews, although he doesn't the CO marker) Colossus appears along with two other Colossi and soon two Snow Giants with more health than usual join the battle. The cadets can concentrate on the Giants first.
There is an SO to deal 5000 damage to a Snow Giant that yields a Wildfire Saber for Queen. King or Trey are good candidates for their strong chargeable attacks, or an Eidolon can also be used. Taking down all enemies completes the trial.
- Gel. XV – Secret Agents Zero
The dominion suddenly lost contact with the recon team charged with surveilling the empire on the snow-swept slopes of Mt. Klimov. Suspecting that the empire was up to something, Dominion Intel requested the commandant send a unit to investigate. Thus, Central Command deployed a cadet task force to the mountain to inspect the area for any suspicious imperial activity. There, the cadets discovered the empire had dug out an excavation site—which they proceeded to destroy, along with the imperial troops guarding the facility.
