Success

The view through glass

You climb well, but the noman climbs like a barometer: steadily, tirelessly, irresistibly. You cross the facades of buildings, peering through windows, ignoring lesser lures […] Your noman taps your arm. "How about the next one up?" it breathes. […]

Description summary:
You and the noman search the buildings, finding various residents doing their thing. Eventually, the noman suggests a window, and you find it is unlocked. There's treasure behind it.
