The niraya-pala (hell-guardians) of this purgatory force the hell-beings to climb up a burning iron mountain and then they are slipped down by strong winds,

falling to the red-hot stakes below.

There they experience feelings that are painful, sharp, severe, as long as the power of their evil kamma lasts.
