Here are some things to consider for Mapping Escorts:

pathway in front of me as much as possible.
There are two walls to every passage. We must go through every passage in

Be aware that sometimes I must retreat along the wall to fix a
After finishing a cave room's outer walls, I search for inside walls, posts,
