The Ascent is the one hundred and fifty-eighth episode of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, and the fourteenth episode of season thirteen.


The Upply-with Wu and Cole newly fitted out in armor-brainstorm ways to get further up the mountain in order to assist the other Ninja against the Skull Sorcerer. Cole hits upon a scheme: taking wheels from off one of the mine carts they used previously and attaching them to the mech the group found in the Heart of the Mountain. With these, they hope to use the mech to push the other cart back up the cart tracks in order to move higher up in the depths of the mountain.

It arrives in the palace gardens of Shintaro, where the Upply are thrilled to once more see the sky. The group proceeds to the throne room, where they find Chompy in a cage after being accused of causing Vania's disappearance. They free the dragon but are then confronted by Hailmar and the Shintaro Royal Guard, who believe Cole and the other Ninja to be traitors.

Vania attempts to reason with her father's right-hand man, but then urges Cole and the Upply to depart while she and Wu deal with the guards. Chompy then transforms into his larger form, which Vania sees for the first time, and enables Cole and the Upply to escape. When Vania refuses to call him off, Hailmar charges the princess to attack...
