Super Mario 64 Tips

Tall Tall Mountain Shortcut
This is very easy. Go to Tall Tall Mountain. Instead of taking the long way to the top of the mountain, there is a very easy shortcut that even my dog can pull off. When you start off in the level, there will be Goombas in front of you. Don't go that way. Go the other way until you see a narrowing ledge with a 1-up at the end of it. Go to the end of this ledge and grab the one up. Now jump off the ledge (no, seriously). There will be a large gust of wind that will lift you up and drop you at the top of the mountain, at least 1/2 way through the level!
