Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

The Columns Vault is an underground chamber in Mayahem Temple in Banjo-Tooie. It is located in the Prison Compound and used to move the Jiggy by vibrating the columns in a strategic order.

To access the Columns Vault, the player must swim underwater in the pond located on the right side of the prison bulding, and through the underwater alcove leading to the other side of the area, revealing a field with several columns. However, there is a boulder blocking the staircase. Use the Bill Drill move to destroy it, allowing the duo permanent access to the Columns Vault. 

To get the jiggy, the player must fire Grenade Eggs at the columns' bases, causing them to vibrate and the jiggy will gradually bounce down to a shorter column. There is a 45-second timer and so the player must stay within the time limit and quickly fire eggs to get to the shortest column as quick as possible. If successful of reaching the last column, immediately head upstairs back outside and flip-flap jump up to collect the jiggy. If the timer hits 0, the jiggy to respawn to the highest column and the player will have to start over.

There are two alternate ways to get the jiggy without access to the Columns Vault, although not much easier, the jiggy can be accessed by using a well-aimed Clockwork Kazooie Egg or with well-timed double jumps and Beak-Buster moves.
