The Mountain Peak Log is an Object in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Uses

The Mountain Peak Log is a Book found among a set of ruins on Mount Granajh. Within it, an unknown author details their attempts to unearth an Ancient Shrine that they learned about.[2] Reading this Book activates the Shrine Quest "Secret of the Snowy Peaks", and its text provides hints for how to unlock the Suma Sahma Shrine.

Quote1.png Discovery Log: Day One

I come to this snowy mountain intending to find the ancient shrine that was written about in an old text.

"The shrine slumbers near the pedestal on a snowy Gerudo peak."

I believe I've arrived at the pedestal mentioned in the text.

Quote1.png Discovery Log: Day Seven

It's been seven days since I arrived at the pedestal mentioned in the ancient texts.

Unfortunately, I'm eating through my food provisions more quickly than I anticipated.

On a brighter note, I've found an explanation in the source text that may be the key to this riddle.

"When the snow mountain pedestal glows, cast a cold shadow onto its core."

I noticed a faint glow to the pedestal for a short while each day. But how to "cast a cold shadow onto its core"...?

It seems that this calls for further research here.

Quote1.png Discovery Log: Day... I've lost count.

I can feel that I'm a hair's breadth away from unlocking the secrets hidden within the pedestal.

I'm certain that "casting" and "cold" refer to using a specific type of shadow.

But I've run out of food entirely, and I doubt now that I ever had the tools to do the job...whatever they might be.
