Hyrule Compendium Entry

141 (146) Frost Talus
BotW Hyrule Compendium Frost Talus
This enormous monster is naturally camouflaged as a frozen rock formation. Neither sword nor arrow can pierce its frigid form. Merely touching its frosty body can leave you with severe frostbite, but you may be able to scale it if you use something to thaw its icy exterior.
Common Locations
Hebra Mountains
Gerudo Highlands
Recoverable Materials
Flint Opal Sapphire Diamond

Frost Taluses are icy variants of Stone Taluses. They can be found in cold, snowy areas throughout the Hebra and Gerudo Regions. They are coated in ice and will freeze Link upon contact, making it impossible for Link to climb them normally. Link can climb a Frost Talus with the upgraded Snowquill Set or Zant's Helmet for the Unfreezable Set Bonus, or by melting its frozen coating with Fire Arrows before attempting to climb it. The rock chunks that they launch at Link will always be coated in ice.

Link can defeat a Frost Talus the same way as every other variant of Talus, inflicting damage to their Ore Deposits through melee attacks, firing Arrows, or by using Urbosa's Fury.

By defeating all Taluses in Hyrule Kingdom, including Frost Taluses, Link will receive the Medal of Honor: Talus from Kilton. However, this can only be done after defeating Calamity Ganon.
