Are you a Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom player seeking the Climbing Gear armor set in the game? Well, you’re in luck. This guide is here to show you the ropes and our step-by-step walkthrough will have you scaling cliffs and exploring hidden areas in no time.

The ever-useful Climbing Gear armor set in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is scattered across the vast map, hidden away. The key to a game of this size is exploration. Don’t be afraid to venture off the beaten path. You never know when you might stumble upon a chest brimming with gear that will help you scale new heights.

While the new Ascend ability and Ultrahand vehicles can greatly speed up traversal, there are still times when Link will need to scale gigantic cliffs and Zonai Ruins. This can be quite frustrating, especially when you only have the default stamina wheel. 

But once you’ve managed to secure the Climbing Gear armor set in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you’ll be able to climb higher and faster than ever before. This will open up new areas of the game and make it easier to reach those hard-to-reach spots.

The Climbing Gear is extremely helpful in Tears of the Kingdom.

The Climbing Gear can be found in the North Hyrule Plain Cave, which is northeast of the New Serenne Stable. There will be a man looking outside the cave entrance, looking for Bubbul Gems in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Enter the cave and take down the two Like Likes that are at the entrance. Use your bow to hit them on the fleshy growth inside their mouth. This will incapacitate them, giving you the opportunity to quickly rush them down with melee hits.

After defeating the Like Like, use Ascend on the rock that protrudes from the waterfall. Quickly kill the enemy above you, then follow the stream until you see the waterfall with glowing Brightbloom Seeds outside it.

Dive into the water and swim through this waterfall, and open the chest in the cavern to get the Climbing Gear top. Make sure you kill the Bubbul Frog at the end of the cave to also get the Bubbul Gem, which you can trade for a variety of rewards. 

As always, we’ll update this guide as soon as we locate the Climber’s Bandana and Climbing Boots. In the meantime, be sure you check out our Zelda page for all the latest news and guides.
