Forest Room

(1 of 2) Each room in the Sky Keep is based on an earlier dungeon; a “greatest hits” if you will.

Each room in the Sky Keep is based on an earlier dungeon; a “greatest hits” if you will. (left), Use your Hook Beetle to cut this stubborn plant holding the rope. (right)

When you get into the next room, go to the right and defeat the Deku and Quadro Babas. Go to the gap ahead. Look up and you’ll notice a swinging post. However, the gap is too big for just your Whip alone.

Launch the Hook Beetle across the gap and cut loose the rope found on the opposite ledge. Hit the swinging post with your Whip, swing to the other rope, then swing to the ledge. Cut down the above Skulltula with an Arrow or something, then hit it with a fatal blow.

(1 of 3) Shoot down the Furnix or it’ll attack you as you’re climbing.

Go around the corner and use your Bow to shoot down the Furnixes across the gap nearby. Clawshot to the rotating column, then go to the other rotating column, then to the Clawshot target to the west. Drop down and you’ll notice the streams of fire leaving the alcoves further along the path.

Look near the bottom of the vinery of the second rotating column to find Bomb Flowers. Using your Hook Beetle, take a Bomb Flower from that column and run into the Pyrups inside the alcoves to kill them – this may take two or three tries because there are three Pyrups total.

(1 of 2) Use the momentum from the Gust Bellows to swing the platforms.

Use the momentum from the Gust Bellows to swing the platforms. (left), For the final jump, wait until the platform is as close to the ledge as possible. (right)

Afterwards, swing across to the wooden platform nearby via the rope. Face the next hanging wooden platform and blow the Gust Bellows at it. Repeat a few times, jump to the platform, then repeat this to get to the ledge.

Here, go to the group of Blessed Butterflies to summon a Goddess Wall. If you’re running low, we recommend drawing arrows. You’ll also find a Bird Statue nearby. Pull the wall switch nearby to create a shortcut, then go into the next room.
