Mt. Corel.

Mt. Corel is a location in Final Fantasy VII. It is a mountain that divides the area around Costa del Sol from the rest of the Western Continent. The town of North Corel is located just at the foot of the mountain. There is also a Mako Reactor on the mountain. The mountain can be traveled via long abandoned stretches of an abandoned railroad system.

Cloud Strife and his party cross the mountain during their search for Sephiroth. Later Shinra Electric Power Company tries to transport a Huge Materia out of the Mt. Corel Reactor, only to have their coal train captured by Cloud's party, now temporarily led by Cid Highwind. Depending on the player's actions, the town of North Corel can be saved or destroyed.

Mt. Corel is also seen in a flashback sequence when Barret tells the story how he lost his friend Dyne and what happened to his home town.

Mt. Corel has enemy formations with as much as five enemies (the maximum in one encounter), making it a desirable place to unlock a new level in Limit Breaks.
