GTA Myths Wiki

Stalagmites are a false myth in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Stalagmite is a type of rock formation that rises from the floor of a cave due to the accumulation of material deposited on the floor from ceiling drippings.


After finding the formation, players theorized that Mount Chiliad was in fact a cave in the past, but a prehistoric earthquake could make the top fall off, uncovering the mountain.


After further investigation, it has been revealed that the rock is in fact a badly spawned rock, with its X and Z axes having lower parameters than it's Y, thus leaving the myth as false. Moreover, the glitch also occurs in areas outside of Mount Chiliad, such as North Rock, disproving the theory further.
