    I have probably filled this guide with mistakes, completely by accident. I'd
    appreciate it if you let me know by sending me an email, which is all in the
    "Credits and Legal Info" section of the guide (at the end).
    
    Also, if you have any suggestions or ideas that you'd like to be put into the
    guide, please, let me know! I'd love to make this guide better.

              sparks, then jump off to the right. Follow the pipes around, being
              cautious not to fall. Continue to run around, pass the giant screen,
              around more pipes, and you'll be able to continue up the red wire.
              You'll encounter some tightropes which you need to go up. Once you go
              up there, find the tall pole and climb up to the very top of it. Once
              you do that, you'll get the achievement. You get a great view up
