Team Cherry’s Metroidvania action-adventure game, Hollow Knight, follows the journey of a nameless warrior called the Knight as he travels through Hallownest, a kingdom ruined by a supernatural disease. As the Knight journeys through Hallownest, he encounters various characters that will help fully unravel the story in the game.

Hollow Knight: How to Find Cornifer in Howling Cliffs

To fully explore and navigate through Hallownest, the Knight must have the maps for the different areas in the game. To obtain maps, the Knight must purchase them from the humming cartographer named Cornifer. Cornifer is working on mapping the entirety of Hallownest so he can be found in every area and sell the area’s map to the Knight.

The player will learn how to find Cornifer in Howling Cliffs in this guide!

Howling Cliffs

Cornifer can be found in the middle part of a large room on the west side of the Howling Cliffs area

In the Howling Cliffs, the Knight will encounter different kinds of enemies. However, the Knight will encounter these specific enemies on the way to Cornifer: Crawlids, Tiktiks, and Vengeflies.

Before the Knight can head to Howling Cliffs and find Cornifer, it is recommended that the Knight must first have the Mantis Claw ability, which allows the Knight to cling to walls and jump off of them, and the Mothwing Cloak ability, which enables the Knight to perform a horizontal dash forwards, or the Monarch Wings ability, which allows the Knight to perform a secondary jump in mid-air. The Knight must also purchase the Lumafly Lantern from Sly in Dirtmouth to light up dark rooms. With this item and these abilities, reaching the Howling Cliffs area and finding Cornifer will be no challenge.

To find Cornifer in Howling Cliffs, this is what the Knight must do:

  1. From the Bench in the middle of Dirtmouth, head to the left, then, upon reaching the wall, jump and climb up the wall using the Mantis Claw ability. At the top of the wall, use the Mothwing Cloak ability to dash towards the platform or the Monarch Wings ability to perform a secondary jump towards the next platform, then take the entrance on the left.
  2. Upon entering the room, the Knight is now back in the King’s Pass area, which is the very first area in the game. Head to the left, drop down on the next gap, head to the right, drop down to the gap, continue dropping down to the platforms below the left, and head to the bottom on the right side of the spikes.
  3. Next, continue to the right of what looks like a wall, and the Knight will be in a hidden part of the area. Continue to the right, jump over the spikes with the help of the Monarch Wings ability to double jump or the Mothwing Cloak ability to dash forwards in mid-air, and drop down on the gap where the Knight will start using the Lumafly Lantern to light up the area, and head to the left where you will find a Geo Chest which, after hitting it, will give off the Fury of the Fallen charm and not Geos.
  4. After that, head to the left, then drop on the narrow gap, continue to the left where the Knight will encounter a Crawlid, continue to head and jump on the platform on the left where the Knight will encounter another Crawlid, jump across the gap, and head to the left until the Knight reaches a large area.
  5. Next, continue to the left of what looks like the end of the path, and the Knight will be in a hidden part of the area with a Geo Deposit. Head up the narrow shaft using the Mantis Claw ability (watch out for the spikes!), then take the exit at the top.
  6. Then, head to the next platform above using the Mantis Claw ability to cling to the wall on the right and jump up and continue to the left, where you will find a wooden structure holding up a wall on the other side. Strike the wooden structure several times to destroy it and open up the path.
  7. After that, continue to the left and up the platforms, where the Knight will encounter another Crawlid, and the Knight has now arrived in Howling Cliffs! Continue to the left where the Knight will encounter another Crawlid, cross the gap by jumping on the small platforms (also where the Knight will encounter a Tiktik, a Vengefly, and another Crawlid), continue to the left past Gorb the Great Mind’s tomb, cross the gap by jumping on the small platforms where the Knight will encounter another Vengfly and Tiktik, then take the exit on the left.
  8. Next, continue to the left, drop down on the gap where the Knight will encounter another Vengefly, Tiktik, and Crawlids, and continue to drop down while staying on the right side of the room until you find a bunch of paper scattered on the ground. You can hear humming, which implies that Cornifer is near.
  9. Finally, head to the right on the platform with a bunch of paper scattered on the ground, and there you will find Cornifer!

Now that the Knight has found Cornifer, the Knight can purchase the map of Howling Cliffs for 75 Geo. After that, the Knight can now navigate the Howling Cliffs area better!
