Goku and Chi-Chi reach the mountain that reportedly holds the Bansho fan, but a heavy snowstorm causes them to crash at the mountain's base. They meet an old woman who explains to them that no woman can climb the mountain without causing a storm. She also tells them that there is no fan on the mountain. Goku scales it hoping to gather enough snow to put out the fire at the Ox King's castle. While Goku is climbing the mountain, the old woman teaches Chi-Chi about being a good wife. Meanwhile, Goku is followed by Pilaf, who thinks the fan might be worth something.
