An Elden Ring player managed to reach the very top of Aeonia’s massive tree, and they left a message at the top as a challenge to other explorers.
An awe-inspiring Elden Ring navigator has conquered the massive tree in the Swamp of Aeonia, leaving a message at the top for others to reach. FromSoftware’s latest soulslike title introduces the open-world setting of the Lands Between and lets players go almost anywhere they want. The Elden Ring region of Caelid is notoriously hard for newcomers to survive, but one player seems to have mastered traversal of the plague-infested area.
Elden Ring takes players on an epic quest through the Lands Between as they defeat various demigods to become the next Elden Lord. Players start out in the lush region of Limgrave, but other areas include the magical swamp Liurnia and the frozen Mountaintops of the Giants. However, Caelid stands out as a particularly brutal location to conquer early in an Elden Ring playthrough. The eastern region is patrolled by powerful enemies, like overgrown ravens and centipede soldiers, and the entire area is infected by the scarlet rot plague. The Swamp of Aeonia is a centralized location for scarlet rot in Caelid, making it an especially troublesome area to traverse.

Recently, Elden Ring player and Reddit user flarebearrr reached the very top of the massive tree growing in the Swamp of Aeonia. The decaying structure is absolutely enormous, and Elden Ring players are never meant to actually climb it. However, flarebearr successfully reached the top by leaping off a cliff onto a high branch. The rest of the way up requires very careful platforming and some wacky jump physics, but eventually flarebearrr is standing on the very tallest bulb of the rotting tree. They even leave a message at the top, which reads “behold, skill!”, which acts as both a boast and a challenge to other potential Elden Ring navigators.
Alongside determination and agility, beloved Elden Ring horse Torrent plays a key role in flarebearrr’s journey to the top of “Mount Aeonia.” The spectral steed is an invaluable ally throughout the entirety of the FromSoftware epic due to the massive size of the Lands Between. Horseback combat is also a key Elden Ring feature, giving players a huge advantage when battling field bosses like dragons or Tree Sentinels. Torrent’s double jump ability makes him especially agile and made flarebearrr’s tree-climbing achievement possible.
Elden Ring features a huge variety of bosses to defeat and items to collect, but some players crave a different challenge. Reaching the top of Aeonia’s massive tree is no small feat, and flarebearrr managed to leave their mark at the top as a challenge to other players. Torrent and acrobatic jumps are key to this amazing feat, and time will tell whether this precarious climb becomes an Elden Ring tradition.
