Popo and Nana were doing what they did best, climbing up snowy mountains. The Ice Climber duo were reaching the top of the glacier that was on the ice side of Hailfire Peaks, when suddenly they spotted Gruntilda Winkybunion riding on her broomstick in front of the glacier.

"Look what I found here, two kids climbing this glacier I fear!" Gruntilda rhymed as the witch rubbed her chin.

"What is she talking about?" Popo commented as he rubbed the back of his head while resting on his wooden mallet.

Nana farted as she fanned the air behind her, shrugging. "I think she's rhyming about us. It's hard to tell."

"So that's how it is, huh?" Grunty said as she didn't bother to rhyme, snapping her fingers as she placed a curse on the Ice Climbers, with the blue and pink pair suddenly turning into snowballs as she laughed. "You're not going to like your experience here!"

The snowball formed Ice Climbers watched as Grunty took off, with them rolling down the glacier as they headed into the freezing sea, which didn't affect them because they were now made out of now.
