After gaining membership of the Gerudo, they allow Link to travel onward to the Haunted Wasteland. With the help of the Lens of Truth and Phantom Guide, Link arrives, but finds the way beyond the Spirit Temple's entrance lobby blocked. Exiting, he finds Sheik, who tells him to return as a child, and teaches him the Requiem of Spirit so that he can warp directly to the Triforce Pedestal, bypassing the Gerudo and the Wasteland.
As a child, he is tasked with retrieving the Silver Gauntlets from the Spirit Temple by Nabooru, but just as he finds them, he looks out onto the Colossus to see Nabooru being kidnapped by Koume and Kotake. He then travels back to the future, where he can use the Gauntlets to enter the rest of the Spirit Temple and save Nabooru.
