Explanation:
He also meets another caterpillar,Yellow, who tries to convince him to go down with her, BECAUSE climbing and hurting others, IN ORDER to find out what is at the top,(COMMA) is not action she can believe in.

Subject = climbing and hurting others
Verb = is not
Complement = action she can believe in
Sub-claause = in order to find out what is at the top

I have substituted words to make it easier to understand. The breakdown of complex sentences is a useful technique for understanding them. Here there are really two sentences, but BOTH can stand alone, so I have only broken down the 2nd one.

Finally, JFreire's translation with a comma in the appropriate place is fine to me.
