Sizzling Precipice (しゃくねつの がけ?) is the secret area in the Sweltering Parchlands. This area has pits of flames as well as vertical drops, so it involves both Red Pikmin and Winged Pikmin. Its main enemies are Firesnout Beetles that will try to attack Captain Olimar as he slowly floats down.
Right at the start, Olimar can call 8 Winged Pikmin. Those Pikmin will help the player go down the many precipices present in the area. During the descent, Olimar must be careful of the many Firesnout Beetles. They come out from holes in the walls, and shoot out fire at regular intervals. Olimar must be equally aware of the flames, that are present in the majority of the level. In this area, the player can retrieve the Scoreless Dartboard, the Scallop Spring, and the Stoic Head.
