While you’re able to access the Scorching Sandpaper West earlier on in the Yellow Streamer chapter, you shouldn’t rush in until you have Professor Toad by your side, you completed the Fire Vellumental Cave, and you activated all four towers. To get here, go north from the Scorching Sandpaper Desert.

Now that you’ve activated all four towers and each one if pointing to this area, go over to the pedestal in the middle. A green magic circle! Using the Earth Vellumental’s power, raise the Temple of Shrooms out of the sand and out into the dark night.

From here you can enter the main entrance to explore the Temple of Shrooms, or you can stick around to collect all the collectibles in Scorching Sandpaper Minor.


Starting from the southern entrance, walk over to the trio of cacti on the left. Hit the block for Flashy Iron Boots, then whack the cactus to shake off the bug Toad.

On the road into Shroom City is a suspicious mini cactus. Smack it to reveal a Toad.

Once you’ve lifted the Temple of Shrooms out of the sand, walk behind it to find a golden spot. Dig to reveal this collectible treasure!
