Climbing Gear in Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The full set of climbing equipment includes the Climbing Boots, Climber's Bandana, and Climbing Gear. These three pieces are all found in three different chests placed throughout the map. The complete set's locations are listed below.
The chest piece itself is located in the Chaas Qeta Shrine. You will find this Shrine on the island in the middle of the Necluda Sea, which is on the map's southeastern corner. Its location is highlighted in red on the image above. To reach the chest, you must make it through the Shrine and defeat the guardian at the end. The chest will then be available in front of the Spirit.
The Climbing Boots are located in the Tahno O'ah Shrine, which is directly Southeast of Mount Lanayru, on the map's eastern side. You will need to use bombs to blow up a rock wall that is hiding this Shrine. Once you're inside, there are no further challenges. You can simply walk in and open the chest to obtain the Climbing boots.
The Climbers Bandana is located in Ree Dahee Shrine, one of the Shrines on Dueling Peaks. There are two Shrines in this location, and you'll be entering the eastern Shrine to get the Climber's Bandana. The chest containing the item is on the left side of the room at the top of a ramp that you force to tilt downward.
You can purchase all the Climbing Gear items from Granté in Tarrey Town once you have obtained them for the first time. Each item costs a total of 4000 Rupees.
