Twilight Princess Walkthrough – Scaling Snowpeak

This chapter covers the normal mode of the HD version of Twilight Princess for the Nintendo Wii U. If you are playing on the Nintendo Wii, check out the Scaling Snowpeak – Wii Version.

14.1 Goodies with the Spinner

After defeating Stallord, you’ll appear outside of Arbiter’s Grounds. Scale the area to reach the Mirror Chamber. As you walk forward, several Shadow Beasts will drop from a portal. Defeat the five beasts just as you’ve done before to create a warp point. Then use your spinner to climb to the top of the statue. With the spinner in place, spin rapidly, and the platform will lower, raising the broken Mirror of Twilight.

This will trigger a lengthy cut-scene where it talks about Ganondorf and how he was sentenced to death by the Sages. He used the power of the Triforce to break free and killed one of the Sages. Since Ganondorf was not able to be killed, the Sages used the Mirror of Twilight to banish Ganondorf into the Twilight Realm. Link and Mdina then learn that the Mirror of Twilight has been broken into pieces and their next quest is to find the three remaining fragments.

NOTE: Everything else in this section is completely optional. To continue onward with the main quest, jump ahead to section 14.2.

Warp over to just outside Castle Town and then head to the west to the next area. As soon as the next area loads, at the fork in the road, turn to the north, to find a piece of land that connects the Great Bridge of Hylia and North Hyrule Field. If you didn’t do so already, use your bombs to blast the boulders that are blocking your way.

At the north end of this path, if you look along the wall, you will see some rails that you can attach to with the Spinner. Do so and ride the rails southward. There are parts where the rails end and you’ll need to jump across the gap to the other side to connect to other rails. At the end of the path, you’ll find a treasure chest, so go ahead and open it to get Piece of Heart #29.

Warp over to the Bridge of Eldin and travel northward, as if you were heading towards North Hyrule Field. Once you cross a small wooden bridge, jump off of Epona and look to the north to find some rails. Use the Spinner to glide down the rails and you’ll find a small circle of grass. Use Wolf Link to dig to find an underground grotto.

Inside you will find a trio of Stalfos. Knock them down and use bombs to defeat them. If you are short on bombs, there is a treasure chest here that contains some extra bombs. When all three have been defeated, open the treasure chest that appears to get Piece of Heart #30.

Warp over to Castle Town and enter the town. Run through town and then exit through the South Gate. Run across the bridge and down the first set of stairs, but not the second set with the fountain. Look around and you’ll see two pillars with a long thin archway between them. The one to the left (from where you entered) has a Clawshot target on the other side that you can attach yourself to. Do just that and then instead of climbing up, drop down and you’ll notice some spinner rails.

Use the spinner to attach to the rails and once you are halfway across on the rail, jump off and you’ll land near the treasure chest that is in the fountain area. Open up the treasure chest to get the Surprised Zelda Stamp.

14.2 Catch the Reekfish

Make your way back to Telma’s Bar back in Castle Town and you can speak with Telma and the Resistance group. If you talk to them and glance at the map, you will find that Ashei has traveled up to Snowpeak Mountain and it will be marked on your map.

Exit Telma’s Bar and warp over to Zora’s Domain. Exit the throne room and then jump down the waterfall. Swim down to the area at the west side of the map. Travel through the corridor to head west towards the Peak Province.

Once you arrive, you will find yourself in the snow filled region known as Snowpeak. Speak with Ashei who can be seen standing around and she tells a story of a beast that has come down to Zora’s Domain. She gives you a sketch of the creature and it is holding a red fish. You cannot progress deep into the Blizzard, so turn back and head to Zora’s Domain.

If you run around and show Ashei’s sketch to the Zora, they will recognize the red fish as a Reekfish. They also repeatedly state that seeing the picture reminds them of Prince Ralis.

Warp over to Kakariko Village and then enter the graveyard. Make your way to the back section of the graveyard where Prince Ralis can be seen kneeling down by the gravestone. Show him Ashei’s Sketch and he will recognize the reekfish. He mentions that they regularly can be found in Zora’s Domain, but they can only be caught with the proper bait. The Prince will give you the Coral Earring, which attaches to your fishing rod and will allow you to catch a Reekfish.

Warp back over to Zora’s Domain and jump down the waterfall. Prince Ralis suggested that a Reekfish can be found near the Mother-and-Child Rocks. Surface at the east side of the river and you’ll see the two large rocks sticking up from underwater. Toss out your fishing rod and wait for it to sink down into the water. Pull back and reel in a Reekfish.

The Reekfish gives off a strong stench. Transform into Wolf Link and use your senses to learn the Reekfish Scent. With the new scent now learned, make your way back to Snowpeak where you saw Ashei.

14.3 Navigating Peak Province

Back at Snowpeak, use Wolf’s Link senses and follow the Reekfish scent across the snow and ice. If you fall in the frozen water, you will be frozen and take damage, so be careful. On the other side of the lake you will meet some new enemies known as White Wolfos. They appear from beneath the snow and will dash towards you. For the most part, you can just avoid them.

Follow the path and once you reach the northwest part of the map, you will find a Poe Soul. This particular Poe is rare as it doesn’t matter the time of day, as it will always appear. This Poe is located just before where the scent goes up a wall and you have to go slightly around and then climb some small ledges.

Poe Soul #42: Along the path in Snowpeak, before climbing some small ledges.

Before climbing up those small ledges, there is still another Poe to get. Head east and you might see a lone tree off in the distance, on a cliff overlooking the ice floes you jumped across earlier. A Poe is floating next to it. This Poe will also appear regardless of whether it is day or night. Defeat it to get the next Poe Soul. There is an underground cavern next to this Poe, but we cannot do too much with it just yet.

Poe Soul #43: Next to a solitary tree southeast of the Reekfish path, on a cliff overlooking the ice floes.

Make your way back to the west end of the map and climb up along the ledges at the southwest part of the map. Continue scaling the area until you finally get out of the blizzard area and have some more visibility. There are a pair of trees nearby. Surrounding the closer tree is a dig spot for an underground cavern. You can enter if you’d like, but all that is in this particular cavern is some enemy Ice Keese and a Chu behind some bombable boulders.

Now that we are out of the blizzard, the day/night cycle has become relevant again. Next to the tree with the underground cavern, there is a Poe that will appear, but only at night time. Either wait until night time and defeat him, or come back later to defeat the Poe.

Poe Soul #44: At the higher area of Snowpeak, after getting out of the Blizzard. The Poe can be found floating near one of a pair of trees.

Continue following the scent of the Reekfish and it eventually runs into a wall of snow and it appears there is no way to get up. Use Wolf Link and dash right into the wall. This will create a small avalanche, and the snow will create a ramp for you to climb up.

Once you climb the ramp, follow the scent closely as it turns to the left. Run all the way into the distance where you will find a Howling Stone. (It is actually easier to see if you turn your senses off.) After successfully completing the song, the Golden Wolf will appear back at the Kakariko Village Graveyard. While we /could/ warp there right now, I would suggest waiting just a few moments until we open a nearby warp portal in this region to make getting back a lot faster.

Follow the scent as it wraps around the mountain. It eventually leads to a wall where Link can dig underneath to find a snow-filled cavern. Inside, transform back into human Link and climb the ladder. Watch out for the ice keese as you navigate this rather linear pathway. Climb the vines and exit the cavern.

Walk forward and you’ll be confronted by some shadow beasts. Defeat the three beasts just as you’ve done before and you will create a warp portal so you can easily warp back up to the mountain.

Before progressing onward, now is a good time to go learn that hidden skill if you’d like. It’s completely optional, so you can skip it or do it later if you’d like. Warp over to Kakariko Village and head over to the Graveyard.

Approach the Golden Wolf and you will once again be confronted by the Hero’s Shade. After assuring you have learned the Mortal Draw (remember that you have to sheath your sword and move close before you can use it, let go of Z-target and press A to sheath your sword), he will teach you the next sword technique, the Jump Strike. After locking onto a target, you can hold A to deliver a jump strike attack. This is honestly one of the attacks I use the least often, but it’s cool nonetheless. After learning the new attack, talk to Midna and warp back over to the Snowpeak Top warp portal.

14.4 Entering the Snowpeak Ruins

Run forward and speak with the giant Yeti named Yeto. Tell him that you are looking for something, and he finds that you are looking for the Mirror Shard. He tells you to follow him back to his house as he found a Mirror Shard. Roll into the nearby tree and a piece of ice will drop onto the snow. Jump on it and you can use it to slide down the mountain ahead. The path is rather linear and even if you hit a few things, you’ll be fine. Just be careful not to fall of the ledge towards the end of the path.

At the end of the path, you’ll jump off the piece of ice and see a large mansion. This is the Snowpeak Ruins and the location of the 5th dungeon. Before entering, turn back around and walk into the snow. Use Wolf Link to climb the nearby spiral snow hill. At the top of the hill, you will find a Poe Soul floating around. Defeat it and capture the Poe Soul. Then make your way over and enter the mansion.

Poe Soul #45: Found just outside of the Snowpeak Ruins. Climb the spiral snow hill to find the Poe Soul.

    Weird… I am currently using Kratom and Zelda to come off of suboxone a second time… had I more bucks I would probably give your stuff a shot man, headshops are killing me with low grade red vein at 40 bucks for like 30g… anyways have you or do you know many people who have successfully used Kratom to make the suboxone w/d and or PAWS a bit easier? I hear you though man, I don’t know how I turned my back on Zelda for so long… makes me feel the magic of life to some extent.

    • Alex Murray

      This legit really tripped me out when I saw this.Thats awesome man.Yea most of my clients are people who use kratom to get off of subs or heroin or perscribed pain killers.I cant legally say that it helps because im not a doctor but my clients have told me that it makes a big difference in their lives.A lot of these online vendors are selling bunk product and overcharging their customers like crazy.When you have some extra cash I highly recomend checking out murrayskratom.com I do 75 grams for $50 and you wont regret trying my product,thats a garuntee.I get my product straight from the tree it comes from,theres no additives or cutting going on with it. Thanks for replying to me man,even if you dont end up trying my product it already just made my day that someone else who loves zelda is using kratom to improve their life man,thats really awesome

      • Christopher C. Calvinson

        Right on, man… I did think it was weird too as I don’t imagine Kratom and the Zelda walks of life going together, but here you are… I think it is unrealistic for people to say “no more opioids for the REST of my life” when getting clean. I imagine I will become something of a kratom weekend warrior, so if that’s the case I will definitely check you out. Regardless, thanks for the reply man and I hope your business does well! 75g for 50 bucks is damn fine so you deserve it.

        • Alex Murray

          Its a funny combo,kratom and zelda but they go well together lol. Sounds good man I look foward to hopefully supplying you some kratom in the future.Thanks I really appreciate it.

  • Ghoulish Mint

    I missed a howling stone somewhere along the line…

  • Myukki

    Just wanted to throw thos in there, I mean, you guys at Zelda Dungeon are experts, but I noticed that some people could benefit from this: An easy way to earn rupees, if you haven’t already figured it out, is cutting all of the grass at the fishing hole.

  • JMannJr

    for those of you that have been stuck for 2 weeks at chapter 13 ……guess what ??? Our boy has been busy completing the rest of the walkthrough…..Mases just wanted to see how many ppl he could get stymied on 13 ….That`s Funny Right there..NICE !!!!

  • Thortok

    Ready and waiting for the update! =D

  • Jolem

    When can we excpect new chapter to be done? 🙂

  • Shiny Turkey

    time for another 1-2 week wait

    • Quest

      Apparantly…

  • Paul Gasper

    We all appreciate your efforts, but don’t say it’ll be updated in coming days when a couple weeks go by and there is still no update. I count on your guides to get through the games as quickly as possible for my viewers and we’re in a stall now and it sucks I tell them we’ll get back to it in a few days and still nothing. At least let us know the progress!

    • Quest

      I think what you’re seeing above is the progress. The other chapters have been updated bit by bit. It’s not like the entire chapter is written and then uploaded. That being said, it’s getting really irritating not to get any progress at all for a week.

    • Thortok

      The progress is that there is no progress. Since the end of last chapter was finished last Sunday, there has been zero progress. All the previous chapters have been updated as soon as the content was written, so unless that’s changed, then it can be assumed that no content has actually been written since Sunday.

      This isn’t meant to be an insult to the author or anything, just a statement of fact.

      Also keep in mind that as far as getting through the game for your viewers, the Wii guide is right there, feel free to use it at any time, and just swap the left/right and east/west.

      • jtp94544

        Those of us who seek out and follow a guide of this nature will not be satisfied with the Wii version, because we are obsessive compulsive perfectionists. I am grateful for the authors’ work, but they should understand their audience and only release the guide when it is complete. If I had known when I started that the final third of this guide would not be completed for several weeks or longer I wouldn’t have used it at all.

        • Thortok

          What’s wrong with the wii version? It’s a 100% completion guide too. The only possibility is stuff that was mentioned in the wii guide in earlier chapters that wasn’t mentioned in the HD guide in earlier chapters, which is easy enough to review and find, before you pick up where the HD guide leaves off and continue using the Wii guide.

          I’m waiting because I want to help review the walkthrough itself for grammar and accuracy, like I’ve done on previous chapters, but there’s no reason why anyone else should wait. The wii guide is right there, use it any time.

          • Mr Anderson

            Though the wii version does include the majority of the details, it does not include the miiverse stamps, and is somewhat inconsistent with the progress of the wii u version.

          • Thortok

            True, but guides of JUST the stamps are available elsewhere (or so I’m told), and it’s still better than nothing.

            Could always try playing the game without a walkthrough and solving it yourself, too. =D

          • Mr Anderson

            I’ve already beat the bare minimum of the game, but I’m replaying it, and I want to beat it completely. Without the guide this is ridiculously difficult. If I was playing it for the first time I probably wouldn’t be using a guide at all. I also tried the other guide but I do like this a lot better.

          • Thortok

            What’s difficult about it? If you have questions, I can probably answer them.

            Now I will totally agree that using the Wii version, having to swap directions, and then looking up stamps in some other guide elsewhere, is a lot of hassle just to look stuff up, but if you get stuck/frustrated trying to find stuff on your own, that’s still better than nothing. Or you can wait for this guide to be updated. I think he said he expected the guide to finish by the end of May, if I remember correctly.

          • Quest

            Then he’s got to hurry up, only a month to do half a guide, when the first half has taken more than one month. I’m not getting my hopes up. But I’m not in a hurry either 😉

      • Paul Gasper

        The last completed chapter was finished prior to last Sunday, as it’s been a week and a half since I used it.

        • Thortok

          The final bit of the chapter including the boss fight was finished 7 days ago, just about. That’s the date on my corrections thread, which I waited to start until the entire chapter was done.

          The majority of the chapter was finished sooner, but the final bit was finished 7 days ago.

      • Jolem

        Well but kinda good if the author at least botherd to give us an update, since there been lots of question for it. I dont mind the wait if I know whats going on. I know he said in his last post that he was getting bored of it since he already played hte wii one. Would be good to know if he is going to finish this any time soon or so 🙂

  • Thortok

    So with the news that the Wii U Zelda is being delayed an entire year, it does look like this is going to be the last Zelda we get to play for awhile. =(

    • Alexandria Desmarais

      Yeah, Kinda disappointed that it will not be out this year

    • spigelwii

      Oh man, I could make a cruel joke about how this guide is being delayed for an entire year but I’ll save that for someone wittier and meaner than me.

      Oops. Oh well.

      (Don’t get me wrong; I seriously appreciate all the work you guys done so far! Thank you so much for putting together an incredibly comprehensive guide for one of the most beautiful Zelda games ever made!)

  • Duffykinz

    does he even care about this guide anymore i mean seriously?

    • Scrapper

      I’m beginning to think not. It’s getting ridiculous. At the very least tell us when you believe the chapter to be ready.

  • Watchog

    It’s been two weeks since the last update and the author hasn’t even started on this chapter yet. Congratulations, I’m never using this site again.

  • Jolem

    I doubt that we ever will see the guidecomplete, since the author cant even be bothered to write one small comment

  • Kai Shepherd

    So I am now up to date with this and I can’t do anymore without this chapter being complete. I have every single fish from every location at record breaking sizes. I have completed rollerball.
    There really is only to progress with the story. Do we know how long until the next updates come out?

  • Anonymous-4

    I have been a firm believer that in the last few years, the quality of Zelda Dungeon guides has gone down. The lack of any kind of updates to the users and followers of this guide and to the guide itself has only proven my point. I appreciate you shitting on those of us who have been dedicated enough to wait all this time for nothing.

  • After a few weeks off, progress has continued on this guide. I’d like to thank everybody that has helped me with this guide thus far, pointing out errors, pointing out things I missed, or just helping others in the comments when they are stuck.

    I wanted to apologize in the total lack of progress with this guide for a few weeks. Bottomline is that other things have popped up and I’ve seriously neglected it. Looking at the stats of the website, I see a lot of people accessing the first 8 chapters of the guide, through the Lakebed Temple and then there is a notable drop off. Very few people are using the post-Lakebed Temple content, including the completed portions up through Arbiter’s Grounds. I wonder if this is just because a lot of players stop playing, or only go through the main quest and don’t need a guide? Nevertheless, I have to admit that seeing the diminishing need for the guide as people get deeper in the game has lowered my ambition to complete the guide. In particular because I already wrote a Wii Version guide years ago that still works for the most part.

    That all being said. This guide WILL GET DONE. I’m making it a point to work on this guide every day. I’ve literally set aside a period of time each and every day to make progress. Even if it means just a few sentences, or a couple pictures, or just playing/recording the next part of the guide. I need to work on this everyday.

    Thanks again for all the support.

    • foulaxea

      Really appreciate all the work you’ve put into this, it’s really helped. This guide has definitely been one of, if not, the best guides I’ve ever used. Keep up the good work! But please don’t feel pressured into working too hard for too long. I appreciate all you’ve done so far, and I’m sure a lot of other people do too. By all means do what you can, and don’t be afraid to relax a little!

    • Thortok

      The arbiter’s ground section is currently complete, yes, but that was where the first week-long delay was if I remember correctly. I’m pretty sure most people saw that the rest wasn’t done yet, and then left and didn’t come back, and aren’t going to as they’ve probably already beaten the game by now.

      Also, since the game is a remake in the first place, and has been out for awhile now and isn’t ‘new’ anymore, the demand for guides has probably died down significantly. However, wii-u specific guides are still rare, so there’s still some demand to get this done. Plus, just leaving it partially complete isn’t professional.

      I think the biggest thing that was frustrating was a lack of contact. Even a placating “sorry no work done, I’ll get to it eventually” every 3-4 days would be better than weeks of complete silence. So don’t feel like you have to work too hard, just keep the lines of communication open and most of us will be fine.

      And don’t forget I’m still more than happy to help. I can even record video and take pictures in 1080i quite easily. My card doesn’t quite go up to 1080p unfortunately but usually there’s not that much of a difference.

      To be honest, I was probably like one week away from finishing this guide myself in the comments section lol. But I’m glad to see you back!

    • jase0517

      I have to agree with everyone who has said to keep communication open. That said, I did end up moving on this weekend, and just got through the Palace of Twilight. I just looked up different stamp lists, and integrated that with the old Wii walkthrough to make a checklist of my own. (Honestly, the hardest part was the stupid cats sidequest, I kept getting stuck with only 19. The broken pics links didn’t help.)

      Unfortunately, I also have to agree with the person who earlier said that current walkthroughs are not meeting the standard set in previous years. Part of that, I think, is the revamping of format due to the aforementioned desktop/mobile version issue, and I think you’ve been working on that with the new summary boxes. But several other walkthroughs are still unfinished—the linked Oracle Games, the end of Tri Force Heroes, Phantom Hourglass (which, considering we are now getting a North America VC release, might need to get done sooner rather than later). And, of course, the timeliness of the updates; I might be “misremembering” things, but I swear that complete walkthroughs used to be up on or soon after release date. Though maybe Nintendo is not giving ZD early copies or something…

      That said, I looked around other sites and I still didn’t find anything I like better than ZD walkthroughs. So while I am disappointed in how this walkthrough update has gone, I’m not leaving anytime soon.

    • spigelwii

      Glad to see you back, man. I always believed!

    • Scrapper

      What?! You don’t know why people stopped using the guide? Because you stopped updating it on a regular basis. I bet people wanted a guide, but they also wanted to play the game, so they decided to just go through the game on their own. But they wouldn’t have to, if you’ve continued updating or at least said something. You’ve been completely silent for the last couple of weeks and that lack of update (even if there was nothing to update) is the most frustrating part of this.

      • I meant – there is a huge around the Lakebed Temple. The most viewed chapters were from Goron Mines through Lakebed. The Master Sword Chapter, Gerudo Desert, and Arbiter’s Grounds chapters are barely viewed. Those chapters have been complete for a long while. Looks like Lakebed Temple is the fall-off part of the game for most players.

        • spigelwii

          Wasn’t Lakebed Temple when the first rather lengthy delay happened? That could be the reason.

          • Lakebed didn’t take took long to complete. Viewership of chapters doesn’t have direct relation with completion time. It’s just normal with these guides.

            Even right now, I look at some of our most viewed pages on the website. For our Ocarina of Time guide… it’s not the Spirit Temple, or Ganon’s Tower, like one might expect. Instead, it’s… Dodongo’s Cavern, Jabu-Jabu’s Belly, and the Forest Temple.

            For Majora’s Mask, the most viewed chapter is Southern Swamp.

            People use the guides for the first portion of the game.

          • Zagranth

            I usually use the walkthrough for the overworld parts. In dungeons map and compass are useful enough to find all the treasure chests.

          • Scrapper

            Personally, if I use guides, I use them all the way through. If not then I usually use them for the later parts, where the games actually get difficult. But that’s not important to help out with because the majority stops using the guides before the hard parts… I can’t get my head around that logic.

    • Matthias Andrews

      I actually started playing the game with this guide up until Snowpeak, and then just stopped as the guide wasn’t complete yet. This is my first time playing Twilight Princess (HD), and I’ve had to stop my gameplay for multiple weeks as the guide wasn’t up yet. As soon as I saw this chapter had been added, I played the chapter immediately, and will probably repeat this for the rest of the game.
      It’s nice to know it hasn’t been abandoned, because the quality of walkthroughs on this webpage are definitely the best I’ve been able to find online. I realise it must be very difficult to create these walkthroughs, but I guess it’s worked out for the best – after all, the faster I finish this game, the more time I’ll end up waiting anxiously for Zelda: Forever Delayed!

    • Thortok

      > I’m making it a point to work on this guide every day. I’ve literally set aside a period of time each and every day to make progress. Even if it means just a few sentences, or a couple pictures, or just playing/recording the next part of the guide. I need to work on this everyday.

      I can only imagine what it must feel like to make this kind of promise and then break it after only a couple days later.

      I know what it’s like to start a walkthrough and then not finish it. I never did finish one of mine (Final Fantasy 12) because I simply lost interest in the game and didn’t want to play it anymore. So I’ve been patient.

      As patient as I have been this entire time, my patience is finally starting to wear thin.

      Would you please consider handing this over to someone willing to invest the time to get it done? I volunteer myself of course, but maybe there’s someone else already on your staff that’d be willing to take it on. I don’t know how much you’ve got going on in your life right now, everyone’s circumstances are different, but if it’s so busy you can’t get this walkthrough done…hand it off to someone who can and will. It’s time to tag team it.

      If this walkthrough doesn’t get finished up soon, not just a little bit more progress but actually finished, I’m going to go somewhere else. And based off this situation, it makes me not particularly willing to come back.

      I can only imagine how many people, less patient than I, have already made this decision, without even bothering to say anything about it. It can’t be good for your site.

      I don’t mean to be rude or insulting, but this is just depressing. The game has been out for over 3 months, there’s not THAT much game left, I could probably finish this guide in two weekends, less if I get some time during the week to work on it.

      Please. Just get it done.

  • Kai Shepherd

    Well I guess it’s time to find another guide. A better one that is finished.

  • Thortok

    Corrections thread time!

    • Thortok

      14.1 Goodies with the Spinner

      After defeating Stallord, you’ll appear outside of Arbiter’s Grounds. Scale the area to reach the Mirror Chamber. As you walk forward, several Shadow Beasts will drop from a portal. Defeat the five beasts just as you’ve done before to create a warp point. Then use your spinner to climb to the top of the statue. With the spinner in place, spin rapidly, and the platform will lower, raising the broken Mirror.

      -the to a
      -said portal twice, changed to warp point

      This will trigger a lengthy cut-scene where it talks about Ganondorf and how he was sentenced to death by the Sages. He used the power of the Triforce to break free and killed one of the Sages. Since Ganondorf was not able to be killed, the Sages used the Mirror of Twilight to banish him into the Twilight Realm. Link and Midna then learn that the Mirror of Twilight has been broken into pieces and their next quest is to find the three remaining fragments.

      – capitalize Triforce
      – Correct grammar of killed sentence
      – grammar of quest sentence

      NOTE: Everything else in this section, along with section 14.2 is completely optional. To continue onward with the main quest, jump ahead to section 14.3.

      – Space in main quest

      Warp over to just outside Castle Town and then head west to the next area. As soon as the next area loads, at the fork in the road, turn to the north, which is a piece of land that connects the Great Bridge of Hylia and North Hyrule Field. If you didn’t do so already, use your bombs to blast the boulders that are blocking your way.

      – Change walk to remove implication that you can’t run there
      – Include bit about load screen to keep directions clear

      At the north end of this path, if you look along the wall, you will see some rails that you can attach to with the Spinner. Do so and ride the rails southward. There are parts where the rails end and you’ll need to jump across the gap to the other side to connect to other rails. At the end of the path, you’ll find a treasure chest, so go ahead and open it to get Piece of Heart #29.

      Warp over to the Bridge of Eldin and travel northward, as if you were heading towards North Hyrule Field. Once you cross a small wooden bridge, look to the north to find some rails. Use the Spinner to glide down the rails and you’ll find a small circle of grass. Use Wolf Link to dig to find an underground grotto.

      – remove unnecessary instructions to ride Epona

      Inside you will find a trio of Stalfos. Knock them down and use bombs to defeat them. If you are short on bombs, there is a treasure chest here that contains some extra bombs. When all three have been defeated, open the treasure chest that appears to get Piece of Heart #30.

      Warp over to Castle Town and enter the town. Run through town and then exit through the South Gate. Run across the bridge and down the first set of stairs, but not the second set with the fountain. Look around and you’ll see two pillars with a long thin archway between them. The one to the left (from where you entered) has a Clawshot target on the other side that you can attach yourself to. Do just that and then instead of climbing up, drop down and you’ll notice some spinner rails.

      -Correct typo of two
      -Give more specific instructions to find location

      Use the spinner to attach to the rails and once you are halfway across on the rail, jump off and you’ll land near the treasure chest that is in the fountain area. Open up the treasure chest to get the Surprised Zelda Stamp.

        But the reekfish is required. That note about skipping chapter 14.2 because it’s obtional shouldn’t be there. Anyways, thanks for the update. I hope the the dungeon guide will be up soon as well.

        • Thortok

          That’s true, I hadn’t gotten that far in the review yet.

          • Josh

            The section linking was off by one in the backend as well…I believe he intended on including another section in here.

            Either way, it’s updated.

          • Correct – originally I had 14.1 and 14.2 as both optional. I decided to merge them as there really wasn’t too much to warrant two sections.

          • Scrapper

            That explains it 🙂

      14.2 Catch the Reekfish

      No corrections needed, as far as I can see =P

      14.3 Navigating Peak Province

      Back at Snowpeak, use Wolf’s Link senses and follow the Reekfish scent across the snow and ice. If you fall in the frozen water, you will be frozen and take damage, so be careful. On the other side of the lake you will meet some new enemies known as White Wolfos. They appear from beneath the snow and will dash towards you. For the most part, you can just avoid them.

      Follow the path and once you reach the northwest part of the map, you will find a Poe Soul. This particular Poe is rare as it doesn’t matter the time of day, as it will always appear. This Poe is located just before where the scent goes up a wall and you have to go slightly around and then climb some small ledges.

      -There’s at least one other Poe that does this so it’s not ‘unique.’ If anything I’d say that this Poe was rare, but y’know? Just forget it. Onward to the lair! (Please tell me somebody gets that reference.)
      – These three poes need a major rework, the instructions were very confusing. I wound up getting 42 but thinking I had gotten 43 since it was right before a climb, then after I figured out I didn’t have 43 yet I got 44 thinking IT was 43 since it was next to a tree, and then I kept trying to find 44 and found the real 43 and wondered why it didn’t have two trees. Confusing as heck.

      Poe Soul #42: Along the path in Snowpeak, before climbing some small ledges.

      – Reclarify.

      Before climbing up those small ledges, there is still another Poe to get. Head east and you might see a lone tree off in the distance, on a cliff overlooking the ice floes you jumped across earlier. A Poe is floating next to it. This Poe will also appear regardless of whether it is day or night. Defeat it to get the next Poe Soul. There is an underground cavern next to this Poe, but we cannot do too much with it just yet.

      – Major rewrite for clarification.
      – to too typo
      – a to an

      Poe Soul #43: Next to a solitary tree southeast of the Reekfish path, on a cliff overlooking the ice floes.

      – Rewrite for clarification.

      Make your way back to the Reekfish scent and climb up along the ledges at the southwest part of the map. Continue scaling the area until you finally get out of the blizzard area and have some more visibility. There are a pair of trees nearby. Surrounding the closer tree is a dig spot for an underground cavern. You can go in if you want, but all that is in this particular cavern is some enemy Ice Keese and a Chu behind some bombable boulders.

      – Make it so going into this cavern is clearly unnecessary and it is just being used as a landmark
      – When I went in it was the sparkling chu, not a red chu, and you didn’t mention the boulders.

      Now that we are out of the blizzard, the day/night cycle has become relevant again. Next to the tree with the underground cavern, there is a Poe that will appear, but only at night time. Either wait until night time and defeat him, or come back later to defeat the Poe.

      Poe Soul #44: At the higher area of Snowpeak, after getting out of the Blizzard. The Poe can be found floating around near one out of a pair of trees.

      – Clarify that this Poe is one next to two trees and not just one tree.

      Continue following the scent of the Reekfish and it eventually runs into a wall of snow and it appears there is no way to get up. Use Wolf Link and dash right into the wall. This will create a small avalanche, and the snow will create a ramp for you to climb up.

      Once you climb the ramp, follow the scent closely as it turns to the left and run all the way into the distance where you will find a Howling Stone. (It is actually easier to see if you turn your senses off.) After successfully completing the song, the Golden Wolf will appear back at the Kakariko Village Graveyard. While we /could/ warp there right now, I would suggest waiting just a few moments until we open a nearby warp portal in this region to make getting back a lot faster.

      – The scent goes right past the stone but if they have senses on they may cut the corner and not see the stone, so clarify.
      – Take out part about it being hard, unnecessary
      – Put a little emphasis on ‘could’ to encourage people not to warp there just yet. I’d make it italics.

      Follow the scent as it wraps around the mountain. It eventually leads to a wall where Link can dig underneath to find a snow-filled cavern. Inside, transform back into human Link and climb the ladder. Watch out for the ice keese as you navigate this rather linear pathway. Climb the vines and exit the cavern.

      Walk forward and you’ll be confronted by some shadow beasts. Defeat the three beasts just as you’ve done before and you will create a warp portal so you can easily warp back up to the mountain.

      Before progressing onward, now is a good time to go learn that hidden skill if you’d like. It’s completely optional, so you can skip it or do it later if you’d like. Warp over to Kakariko Village and head over to the Graveyard.

      Approach the Golden Wolf and you will once again be confronted by the Hero’s Shade. After assuring you have learned the Mortal Draw (remember that you have to sheath your sword and move close before you can use it, let go of Z-target and press A to sheath your sword), he will teach you the next sword technique, the Jump Strike. After locking onto a target, you can hold A to deliver a jump strike attack. This is honestly one of the attacks I use the least often, but it’s cool nonetheless. After learning the new attack, talk to Midna and warp back over to the Snowpeak Top warp portal.

      – add ‘the’ Golden Wolf
      – Give instructions for mortal draw, I’ve seen plenty of people completely forget how to do it by this point.

      14.4 Entering the Snowpeak Ruins

      Run forward and speak with the giant Yeti named Yeto. Tell him that you are looking for something, and he finds that you are looking for the Mirror Shard. He tells you to follow him back to his house as he found a Mirror Shard. Roll into the nearby tree and a piece of ice will drop onto the snow. Jump on it and you can use it to slide down the mountain ahead. The path is rather linear and even if you hit a few things, you’ll be fine. Just be careful not to fall of the ledge towards the end of the path.

      At the end of the path, you’ll jump off the piece of ice and see a large mansion. This is the Snowpeak Ruins and the location of the 5th dungeon. Before entering, turn back around and walk into the snow. Use Wolf Link to climb the nearby spiral snow hill. At the top of the hill, you will find a Poe Soul floating around. Defeat it and capture the Poe soul. Then make your way over and enter the mansion.

      – capitalize Poe

      Poe Soul #45: Found just outside of the Snowpeak Ruins. Climb the spiral snow hill to find the Poe Soul.

      – spiral snow hill is a better description.

  • Chelseapizza

    Thank you! I can relax and play some more Twilight Princess now 🙂

  • Gabriel Olivieri

    There`s a little mistake at the 14.2. The head is showing 12 hearts, but it’s 13 hearts already.
    Anyway, thanks for the guide!! 😀

  • Scrapper

    So is this chapter not done or are you just too lazy to update the overview page (still states that chapter 1-13 is complete and 14 onward is not).

  • Kai Shepherd

    Yet again… literally no updates. Why even bother to apologise and finish the last chapter if you were just gonna walk away again.

  • Michael Spahn

    I just don’t get it. This site used to be the best website for Zelda walkthroughs but they just don’t cover new games like they used too. The guide for Link Between Worlds is still far from complete and hasn’t been updated since the game’s release, the Twilight Princess HD guide also hasn’t seen an update for months and don’t even get me started on the guides for the Oracle games, those have been unfinished for years!
