Cliffs of Ruvara
The Cliffs of Ruvara are a gradual incline of cliffs, leading up to the Gerudo Summit to the south. The cliffs span quite the distance, with the higher elevations being a bit colder, requiring Link to wear some armor with Cold Resistance. There are gradual slopes at various parts of the cliffs, allowing Link to climb up to the top of the Gerudo Highlands.
Along the lower elevations of the cliffs, there are many man-made wooden platforms that Link can walk across. Several of these have been overrun with enemies, including some Blue Bokoblin, Black Bokoblin, and some Blue Moblins. They often have rocks or explosive barrels and will toss them down at Link, if he's trying to climb up the cliffs.
At the northwest part of the cliffs, on one of the lower elevations, heading towards Lake Illumeni, there is a treasure chest that contains a Radiant Shield. It is being protected by a Blue Bokoblin archer who wields some Shock Arrows.

At the far west part of the Cliffs of Ruvara, looking towards the Mystathi's Shelf, there is a strange etching on the wall with thunderbolt symbols on it. This is part of the Cliffside Etchings shrine quest, which is given to Link by Geggle at the Tabantha Bridge Stable. Link will need to shoot the center of the pedestal that is on the wall with a Shock Arrow. This will cause the Keeha Yoog Shrine to appear, completing the quest. The actual shrine is just a blessing shrine, so Link can just speak with Keeha Yoog to get a Spirit Orb.
