Wasteland Tower is a Sheikah Tower within Breath of the Wild.

Tower Features

The tower's travel gate faces Southwest, opposite the Gerudo Canyon Pass

The tower itself is located on top of Spectacle Rock, and is surrounded by swamp that Link can not swim in. The area is also very windy, making it hard for Link to use his Paraglider to reach the tower. Link can use Cryonis to create Ice Blocks to carefully reach the base of the tower. There are also several large metal under the swamp and just south of the swamp that Link can stack on top of each other in order to reach the tower. The metal blocks may also be used to make "dominos" of the stone pillars simplifying the jumping to the tower. Said stone pillars can also be knocked over with Remote Bombs.

In the swamp at the east side of the tower, there is a treasure chest deep underwater. Link can pull it up with Magnesis to get a Sapphire gem. A second treasure is also in the swamp, just northwest of the tower and it contains five Bomb Arrows.

Due to the weather behavior of both the region, as well as the altitude where the tower is located, if reached during the night or during cold weather, the top of the tower may require cold protection from either elixirs or cold-proof armor.
