Volcano Summit is a large volcanic cavern found deep inside and near the crater of Eldin Volcano in Skyward Sword.[1] As described by Ledd the Mogma, it is too hot for a normal traveler to explore.[2][3] Link must travel through the summit many times in a row to extinguish the various pillars of flames that are blocking the path to the Fire Sanctuary where Din's Sacred Flame rests.

Features and Overview

The Volcano Summit is a super-heated area surrounded by flows of lava located deep inside Eldin Volcano. No human can traverse the landscape without the protection of the Fireshield Earrings, which are obtained after Link completes Din's Silent Realm and enable him to traverse the boiling heat of the Volcano Summit. In addition, there is also a large outside area of the summit composed of large rock pillars covered with vines and a small spring that Link may visit to fill his Empty Bottles with water.

The Volcano Summit leads to the entrance of the Fire Sanctuary, which Gorko the Goron, who has come to the region in search of Goddess Cubes, states is blocked by pillars of flames.[4] In order to extinguish them, Link must pour Bottled Water onto the tongues of the frog statues above them.[5] Later Link has to lead the Ancient Robot Scrapper, who is carrying the Water Basin, through the cavern, fending off the Lizalfos and other native enemies who have settled in the area.[6][7] Eventually they extinguish the flames blocking the entrance to the Fire Sanctuary, allowing Link to continue to his adventure to find the final one of the Sacred Flames.

Later, Link is captured and imprisoned by the local Bokoblins after Eldin Volcano erupts while he is descending into the area. He returns to the summit after escaping and reclaiming his equipment and blade from the demons to find a chamber inside the cavern that houses Eldin the Fire Dragon, who caused the eruption out of an explosion of his power.[8] Link learns the second part of the Song of the Hero from him.

  2. "By the way, you ever been to the heart of Eldin Volcano? It's so hot down there it'll burn the clothes right off your back. POOF! Your average traveler will be dead in minutes." — Ledd (Skyward Sword)
  3. "I have a status update for you, Master. We are now near the crater at the peak of Eldin Volcano. I am detecting extremely high temperatures in this area. However, your Fireshield Earring will allow for extended periods of exploration. I calculate the probability of finding the final sacred flame here at 90%. I recommend searching for flames." — Fi (Skyward Sword)
  4. "Oh, hey! We meet again. How have you been, bud? I rumbled over here 'cause I heard someone had spotted some Goddess Cubes in the area. I have got a hunch that they may be down in that direction, but...this flaming wall of fire is blocking the way! I wish there was something we do to put out these flames..." — Gorko (Skyward Sword)
  5. "Do you see this, bud? Talk about intriguing! We are definitely off the map here. This does not feel like Goddess Cube stuff to me! I bet there is something super important hidden around here! All I can say is that is a big frog with a big thirst. I do not think the amount of water of your little bottles can hold is going to cut it this time. Hmmmm... You will have to have a big container to hold the water needed for this job. Got anything like that? And speaking of which, where are you going to get all the water? I gotta say, I am pretty much stumped." — Gorko (Skyward Sword)
  6. "What's going on, brzzt? I almost blew a rotor trying to slow myself during that descent, zrbt... Anyway, this is where you wanted the water, right? WHAT?! THE SUMMIT? Why didn't you say so from the start, bzzrt? I don't want to carry this thing back to the sky. IT'S HEAVY, BRZZZT! Bzzrt...zrrbt...tzzptrr." — LD-301S Scrapper (Skyward Sword)
  7. "This place is, zrrrt, swarming with monsters. Vrrrrrm... I bust up enemies like a junkyard wrecker, zzizat. To bad I've got my mitts full with this basin, bzzz... Hey, Master Shortpants! Since we came all this way, let's play a little game called "protect the robot," bzzrt! Here's how it works--I'll follow you up the volcano, zzzrt, and you make sure nothing touches me. Got it? Good! Your job is simple, zzrrt! You make sure none of these monsters lays a claw on me. NOT...ONE...CLAW!" — LD-301S Scrapper (Skyward Sword)
  8. "I'm afraid that eruption was caused by an explosion of my power. It looks like you were caught up in it. My apologies. The skies above this land should clear soon..." — Eldin (Skyward Sword)
