"Create a pillar of ice from a water surface. Builds ice pillars that are very stable. These pillars can be used as stepping stones or as obstacles. Use Cryonis on an ice pillar to break it."
— In-game description

The Cryonis Rune is a Rune ability for Link's Sheikah Slate in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is unlocked in Keh Namut Shrine. It can be used to create up to a maximum of three frozen pillars simultaneously that Link can climb. Other than climbing on top of the ice pillars, they can also be used as blocks for stopping doors that open and close rapidly. It can create ice pillars vertically from the ground or horizontally on waterfalls. If Link creates a fourth pillar while three pillars are already active, the first pillar (by chronological order of creation) will disappear.


The word cryonis comes from the Greek cryo or cryos (κρύο) which means "icy cold".
