Nintendo has distributed more free in-game items to those playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, available through The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Tips from the Wild News channel on Nintendo Switch.

After the first articles explained how you can befriend the dogs that you encounter, how to make Honey Candy, mucking around with the boomerang, and tips on how to shield surf, game director Hidemaro Fujibayashi has now provided tips on climbing ever higher in Link’s open-air adventure.

“Picture this. You’re climbing up a cliff, and you’re JUST about to reach the top… but then you run out of stamina and go plummeting back down! Sound familiar? If so, read on!” Fujibayashi opens.

“When you see your stamina circle turn red – which means that it’s about to be depleted entirely – try pressing X to wall jump. You’ll spend the remainder of your energy on one last desperate leap, which will actually take you twice as far as a normal wall jump! Give this high-stakes move a try the next time things are looking a little grim on the wall. Who knows? Maybe, just maybe, you’ll be able to scramble up to safety!

“If you’re more the type to play it safe, please accept this in-game gift of a Bright-Eyed Crab and two Stamella Shrooms to cook with. The items will appear in your game if you open it using the link below. Just make sure that you either have the game card inserted or the downloadable version of the software installed on your console.

“Enjoy your time climbing, and remember to stay safe!”

Nintendo once again adds that you must have obtained the paraglider before you can receive these items and that you may not be able to receive them at some in-game locations such as shrines and dungeons or on certain terrain.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch and Wii U worldwide.
