Break into and defeat the monsters in Gerudo Canyon Well
Varies depending on how many Potential Princess Sightings! quests have been previously completed, see that article
When Link reaches Gerudo Canyon Stable, he finds it is closing - partly because of the events in the Gerudo Desert, but partly because the stable's well has been "temporarily" blocked up by Princess Zelda for a long time, leading to a shortage of water and the unavailability of the brightcap mushrooms which grew in it. After he speaks to Penn and Piaffe about this, he goes down the well and finds a sediment wall, behind which is a den full of monsters.
After killing every last monster, he goes back to the surface and reports to Penn that Zelda blocked up the well because of the monsters. Penn speculates that she didn't tell anyone because she didn't want to cause a panic, then pays Link as usual for the story.
|Penn's sources told him that Princess Zelda ordered the well to be made off-limits, but the reason she did so is a mystery. Penn thinks it'd be helpful to go down the well to look for clues, but his wings are too wide for him to fit.|
|After climbing down into the well, you found a rock wall inside and broke it—revealing a cave crawling with monsters. For the safety of those at the stable, you should probably defeat them.|
|You told Penn what was going on at the bottom of the well. Now, it's clear why Princess Zelda didn't want anyone to use the well—there was a den of monsters down there, and she must have known about it. Penn is relieved to have this mystery sorted out. He's going to write up the whole story for the newspaper.|
