The Cliff Plateau Isles are a location from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Located in quadrant G6 of the Great Sea, the isles consist of a small cluster of islands grouped around a larger one. The larger island can only be reached by venturing through a Hidden Hole.
Points of interest
A secret cavern inside the isles is the only way to get to the top of the larger isle. The cave can be found by entering a Hidden Hole on one of the smaller isles. Inside the Hidden Hole, Link must manipulate the tree stump platforms to get to the other side. Once there, he must proceed through a wall of giant thorns and defeat a Boko Baba appearing at the end, between the two larger trees stumps. It leaves a Baba Bud that Link can use to reach two tree stumps. Link can drop down to a chest situated directly below, which contains a Joy Pendant.
Some nearby wooden boards can be burned away with Fire Arrows or by lighting the Boko Stick and throwing it at the boards, allowing Link to use the Deku Leaf to glide over a ledge and enter a beam of light, transporting Link to the top of the large, central island. Here can be found Aldo, a Blue ChuChu and a treasure chest containing a Treasure Chart leading to a Silver Rupee at the Forsaken Fortress.
Withered Forest Tree
Aldo, one of the Koroks who play a part in the Withered Forest Tree quest, can be found on one of the Cliff Plateau Isles after Link has completed the Forbidden Woods. He can use the Forest Water gathered from Forest Haven to restore the tree to life.
After Link has obtained and deciphered the fifth Triforce Chart, obtained near Needle Rock Isle, with the help of Tingle, the chest containing the Triforce Shard can be found at the center of a glowing ring nearby. The chest can be raised from the bottom of the Great Sea with the Grappling Hook.
