How to find Climbing Gear in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

The ability to climb anything and everything was introduced in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so it would just feel wrong to play The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom without it. The only limit to what you can scale in this game is Link's stamina, but there are other ways to boost your climbing prowess. While foods can offer a temporary buff to stamina, there's one outfit in particular that can give you a more reliable boost to your climbing speed. The Climbing Gear set is probably the best to wear if you've got a lot of climbing to do in Tears of the Kingdom, so here's where you can snag it.

How to get the Climbing Gear

The Climbing Gear set is divided into three pieces: the chest, legs, and headpiece.

Step 1: To find the chest, find a hole in the ground called the North Hyrule Plain Cave at the coordinates -1188, 0646, 0072.

Step 2: Travel inside until you find a tiered waterfall guarded by a Horriblin.

Step 3: Enter the secret room behind the upper waterfall to find the chest with the armor.

Step 4: The legs will be found at the Upland Zorana Byroad at 2858, 0354, 0227.

Step 5: Inside the cave, take a right at the first fork.

Step 6: Chop or burn your way through a vine wall blocking your path.

Step 7: Platform across the water to a door that you can use Ultrahand to open and drain the water.

Step 8: Access the doorway under the staircase to grab the Climbing Boots from the chest.

Step 9: Finally, the headpiece is in the Ploymus Mountain Cave at 3663, 0539, 0272.

Step 10: You won't get lost in this cave, but it is a bit difficult to actually move through, so take your time.

Step 11: Once you make it to the end and up to a higher level, go through the open area to your right and into the room with the final chest containing the Climber's Bandanna.

How to complete The Beast and the Princess quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Link speaks to Cima and Penn

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is absolutely bursting at the seams with side content to uncover and complete, but activating some quests requires you to have another quest started first. This is the case with "The Beast and the Princess," which requires you to have already started the "Potential Princess Sightings" quest at Lucky Clover Gazette before visiting Penn at the New Serenne Stable in North Hyrule Plain. If you've already started this quest, though, we'll tell you how to complete it below.
How to complete The Beast and the Princess quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
If you speak to Penn at New Serenne Stable, he'll tell you about a potential Princess Zelda sighting to the south, claiming she was seen riding on some type of beast. It sounds like we're headed down to the coast, so make your way far south to the Bronas Forest either on foot or by making use of nearby Skyview Towers or shrines. For reference, the closest shrine to this area is Jojo-u-u Shrine, so fast traveling there can get you a massive head start on wrapping up the quest. Regardless of how you get down here, though, our next stop is Lakeside Stable.

When you reach Lakeside Stable, look across the ravine and glide over to an NPC named Cima who is relaxing by a nearby bonfire. Engage in some dialogue to learn the truth about Princess Zelda and the beasts in the area, and then wrap up your conversation. About this time, Penn will show up and speak to you, too, ultimately bringing a close to the quest and giving you some rupees as thanks for investigating the mystery.
