Quest Giver Bayge
Location Gut Check Rock

"The Gut Check Challenge" is a Shrine Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]


Link is given this Quest when he speaks with Bayge on top of Gut Check Rock in the northeastern Eldin. Bayge prevents Link from approaching the Gorae Torr Shrine, as it is considered a sacred spot to the Goron Blood Brothers.[2] However, Bayge agrees that if Link can clear the Gut Check Challenge mini-game, he will move aside and allow Link to approach the Shrine.[3]

Link is tasked with climbing the Gut Check Rock in under three minutes while collecting at least 100 Rupees as part of the mini-game. After successfully clearing the mini-game, Bayge happily accepts Link as an honorary fourth Blood Brother, and allows him access to the Shrine.[4] This completes the Shrine Quest.
