I visited Professor Oak's Lab and he gave me the Rock Climb HM so that I could climb Mt. Silver. I flew back to Viridian City afterwards and after shopping for Max Repels, I headed for the gates of the Pokemon League. I got there and made my way to Mt. Silver and I trained in the tall grass and captured some Pokemon that I hadn't captured before. I got to a Pokemon Center and swapped Pokemon around and then I taught Rock Climb to my Golem and I entered the cave. I climbed and then I encountered a wild Sneasel and captured that. I captured some more wild Pokemon in Mt. Silver and then I got to the snowy portions of Mt. Silver. I picked up some items, but I saved the game before going into the final cavern.
