I am here to tell you that whoever came up with the "death grip" feature in DS2 as opposed to the "chain" in DS1 was a complete fool especially trying to use it in the Seperant Peak". Just doesn't function as it has throughout the game. It ios very frustrating to use the feature in this quest. It throws you all over the place and back to the beginning you go to do it all over again and again. What nonesense. I am sure I am NOT the only one who thinks this feature is as good or better than the chain in DS1. It is NOT as good and is very poorly added.
