Bentley: Oh my gosh, that's awful! That poor village just got buried in freezing snow!
Sly: The rocket came from that giant statue, and you can bet the Panda King lit the fuse. I've got to find my way up there fast before that lunatic squashes another town.
— As they witness the Panda King's firework cause an avalanche over Hinkau village[src]

"A Perilous Ascent" was the first job in Fire in the Sky of Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus.


After arriving in China, Sly Cooper made his way throughout the mountainous region near the Panda King's stronghold, bypassing guards and using fireworks that had set up to reach areas otherwise inaccessible.

Along the way, Sly witnessed a village in the distance get buried by an avalanche. The snow had fallen after it was hit by a rocket launched from a large panda statue, and Sly knew he had to get there fast before another town was covered in snow. He eventually made his way to the treasure key, which was protected by several gorillas. Sneaking past them all, he stole the key, then opened the locked gate before heading through to the Panda King's stronghold. Mission complete.


There are 30 clues in this stage, and the vault is located in the building with the three flashlight guards as well as the two fireworks. The combination to the vault is 5-7-8.

I got a real headache figuring this one out. Input 5-7-8.

  • Although the invisibility technique can be used in this stage at the end, Bentley doesn't provide the instructions to do so.
  • At five checkpoints, this level holds the most signal repeaters in any one stage.
    • The key in this stage is furthest away from the security gate of any other opening stage, and the only one that has a checkpoint next to it.
