You will get a torch.
Enter into the house and equip your torch. You will now have to get through one of the hardest parts of this island. Carefully walk up the stairs, and crouch after each move. There will be gusts of wind that can knock you off the stairs if you are not crouched. The trick is to make small moves right after the wind has passed, and stay crouched.

Most of this will have to be done on your own, because it is difficult to explain. You will know when you solved the maze when you find the secret ladder! This ladder will be in a different location than the one you came down with. Go up the new ladder, and hide so that the “ghost” doesn’t see you. Surprise the ghost and follow him down the ladder. When you get to the room again, jump up to the upper right. You will see him next to a grave.
