The marker at Stepping Stone Summit in Grounded is one of the easiest markers to complete from the lot. It will require you to be good with the controls in the game though, but nevertheless, you shouldn’t really have any struggles.
Besides that, we will show you exactly what you need to do in order to complete the quest properly and get yourself some more valuable in-game rewards.
Stepping Stone Summit Marker Location
The Stepping Stone Summit marker is located at the very top of the map. To be exact, in the very to northwest side of the garden, beyond the Mysterious Machine and the Field Station. For better understanding of its exact location, use the image above as a visual guideline.
Once you are in close proximity to the marker, you should see a couple of big rocks that extend into the pond. Jump on the very first one, and go deeper into the pond. You will notice that the rocks that you are supposed to go on in order to reach the exploration marker are connected with brown leaves.
In order to progress into the next step, you need to do some parkour. On the very second leaf that you get on, you must go to the end, and climb the spiky part of the leaf in order to get on the next rock.
After you successfully do that, continue going forward and cross the last leaf that connects the two final rocks. Then, keep moving ahead, and you should soon be able to see the exploration marker.
Note: It is located on the edge of the final rock.
