Mt. Kolts is a dungeon in Final Fantasy VI, which appears only in the World of Balance. It is located at the foot of the Sabre Mountains, which lie northeast of South Figaro.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Terra, Locke, and Edgar pass over this mountain on the way to the Returner Hideout. On the way, they come across a shadowy figure. Once they reach the summit, they learn that this man is Vargas, Duncan's son and student. Vargas fights them, but Sabin comes to the rescue and defeats Vargas. He then joins Terra, Locke, and Edgar on their journeys.

Mt. Kolts does not appear in the World of Ruin. The precise location of the Sabre Mountains is replaced by ocean, so presumably Mt. Kolts and the rest of the mountains sank beneath the water.

Spoilers end here.


Travel to the Returner Hideout

Mt. Kolts is required to be traversed in order to reach the Returner Hideout. Along the way, the party will see a shadowy figure. At the end, this is revealed to be Vargas. The boss fight with Vargas and two Ipooh enemies requires Terra, Locke and Edgar to drop Vargas below a certain level of HP, before he then blasts the three of them out of the fight, and Sabin must fight him. Sabin is required to use a Blitz to defeat Vargas.

The Gigas Glove

The Gigas Glove, a powerful Relic that increases the wearer's physical damage by 25%, is hidden on the mountain. In the second cave, where a lower path leads to an outside ledge with the Main Gauche, there is a hidden path in the upper-right that leads to another part of the cave with the treasure chest with the Glove.

  • If the player returns to Mt. Kolts after South Figaro's capture by the Empire, a green cadet blocks the entrance and tells the player, "This town's under Imperial control", despite there being no town on Mt. Kolts; most likely the dialogue spoken by the soldiers in South Figaro was also used for Mt. Kolts.
  • Using a Game Genie and the "Super Sprint Shoes" code, it's possible to bypass the battle with Vargas when the party meets Sabin by reaching the cave entrance before Vargas hops down. The player continues to the Returner Hideout and Sabin will not appear until the Lete River sequence at which point he's suddenly added into the party at level 1, with no equipment and no Blitz abilities.
