Pillar Pass (or World 2-9) is the sixth level of Rubble Ruins in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. It takes place in a pillar-filled desert accompanied by Boomerang Bros. and Fire Bros..

Pillar Pass is unlocked by completing Searing Sands. Completing its normal exit will unlock Pyramid Castle and Desert Music House, and completing its secret exit will unlock Mighty Meadow in Mini-Mega Island.


Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: When you reach the third pillar, go down to find the pathway to a Warp Pipe that leads to a secret area. The Star Coin isn't in plain sight, but it is found at the very bottom of the secret room. Ground pound the Brick Blocks right below the giant cluster of coins to find the Star Coin at the very bottom.
  • Star Coin 2: After the checkpoint, wait for the first Sand Geyser in the level to appear, then quickly grab the Star Coin as it gets dragged up.
  • Star Coin 3: The final Star Coin can be tricky to get, but it isn't that hard. Hit the top left Brick Block in the brick cluster near the two Buzzy Beetles to reveal a Beanstalk. The Star Coin is in this room, but some Invisible Question Blocks block the way. In order to grab it, reveal some blocks, then jump to the Star Coin.

Secret Exit

A Super Mushroom is required for this secret exit. Go down the Quicksand pit before the two Sledge Bros. and break the Brick Blocks to the red Warp Pipe. The secret exit provides access to Mini-Mega Island.
