                                 Introduction                            [0001]
===============================================================================


Scattered throughout Hyrule are hidden grottos (holes in the ground) that Wolf
Link can dig into. You will need to use Wolf Link's senses to see them. Most
grottos contain Rupees, but some have fishable areas, Poes, or even Heart
Pieces. Almost all of them are filled with pots to break for even more Rupees.
It's best if you wait until you can change forms at will to go hunting for all
the grottos. Having access to most areas is also a must.



===============================================================================
                                 Gerudo Desert                           [1000]
===============================================================================


Grotto #01
  - Items   : None
  - Enemies : Spiders
  - Rewards : 100 Rupees (Kill all the Spiders)

  - Location: Just south of where you land via the cannon is a raised platform.
              At the base of the platform is a trio of skulls. In the center of
              these is the grotto.


Grotto #02
  - Items   : None
  - Enemies : ChuChus
  - Rewards : Free Potions

  - Location: Travel north-northeast of the Gerudo Mesa warp point until you
              drop down into the lower gully. There are a few boulders along
              this wall. One of them has a trio of skulls near it. Dig in the
              center of these to enter the grotto.


Grotto #03
  - Items   : Bombs; Clawshot; Lantern
  - Enemies : Poes
  - Rewards : 2 Poe Souls
              100 Rupees (Light the 3 torches)

  - Location: Head down into the gully like you would for Grotto #02. In the
              northwest area of the gully is a hill with a tree on it. Grapple
              up to the hill and you'll find another trio of skulls. The grotto
              is in the center.


===============================================================================
                         Hyrule Field (Eldin Province)                   [1001]
===============================================================================


Grotto #04 
  - Items   : None
  - Enemies : Keese
  - Rewards : Rupees (Kill all the Keese)

  - Location: Head to the north side of the bridge you warped early on in
              Kakariko Gorge. Veer west, and in the corner, amidst a circle of
              flowers, is the hidden grotto.


Grotto #05
  - Items   : Lantern
  - Enemies : ChuChus, Worm Droppers
  - Rewards : Free Potions
              50 Rupees (Light the 2 torches)

  - Location: This one is tricky to find. The easiest way is to start in
              Kakariko Gorge and travel north to the next part of Hyrule Field
              (you will need to blow up some boulders if you haven't cleared
              the path). Then head north-northwest, and about half way across
              the field, next to some white sand, is a brown patch of dirt. Dig
              here for the grotto. This one is hard to spot as it blends in
              well with the surroundings.


Grotto #06
  - Items   : None
  - Enemies : Bombfish, Skullfish
  - Rewards : 50 Rupees
              Beehive

  - Location: Head north from Kakariko Village to the Bridge of Eldin. Just
              before you reach the arch of the bridge, turn east. A little bit
              past the bricks on the ground is another patch of brown dirt. Dig
              here to find the grotto.


Grotto #07
  - Items   : Spinner
  - Enemies : Stalfos
  - Rewards : Heart Piece (Kill the Stalfos)
              Bombs (Wooden Chest #1)
              Bombs (Wooden Chest #2)
              Bombs (Wooden Chest #3)

  - Location: Head north past the Bridge of Eldin into the valley. You'll come
              to a wooden bridge. On the north side is a Spinner Track. Ride it
              to the end, and dig in the center of the circle of grass to find
              the grotto.


===============================================================================
                         Hyrule Field (Faron Province)                   [1002]

              20 Rupees (Wooden Chest #2)
              20 Rupees (Wooden Chest #3)

  - Location: Enter Hyrule Field from Faron Woods. Head west until you come to
              the southwest corner of the field. There will be a small indent
              in the rock face with a couple grass patches. Dig between them to
              find the grotto.


Grotto #09
  - Items   : None
  - Enemies : None
  - Rewards : Bobber Fishing (Greengill, Ordon Catfish, Hylian Loach)

  - Location: In the same area of Hyrule Field as Grotto #08, head to the
              northeast corner to find a circle of grass. Dig in the center to
              find the grotto.


===============================================================================
                        Hyrule Field (Lanayru Province)                  [1003]

  - Rewards : 2 Poe Souls

  - Location: Take the east exit from Castle Town and head north to the next
              area of Hyrule Field (there is a stream in this area). As soon as
              you enter the area, stray north off the path. You should come
              upon three trees forming a triangle. In the middle of these
              is a circle of grass patches, with a grotto in the center.


Grotto #13

  - Rewards : Rupees (Kill the Skulltulas)
              50 Rupees (Light the 3 torches)

              point of the stream that flows into Castle Town. Near the cave

              circle of grass with a grotto.

  - Enemies : Bubbles, Fire Bubbles, Ice Bubbles
  - Rewards : 100 Rupees (Kill all the enemies)

              ledges with boulders on them. Blow up the boulders and grapple
              your way to the end. Up here, among the a circle of grass, is the
              grotto.


===============================================================================
                                  Lake Hylia                             [1004]
===============================================================================

  - Enemies : Shell Blades
  - Rewards : 100 Rupees (Kill the Shell Blades)

              minigame. Pay 20 Rupees to play the game, and grab a Cucco. When
              you jump off the ledge, turn around and head under the house.
              Eventually you'll see a ledge you can land on. Look around on the
              ledge for the grotto.


Grotto #17

              you can climb up to get to the Howling Stone. On the same level
              of land as the Howling Stone are some patches of grass. Dig
              between them to find the grotto.


===============================================================================
                                  Ordon Ranch                            [1006]

              Master Sword puzzle), there is a boulder you can blow up. Below
              it is a grotto. This one is odd as the hole is not big like the
              others.


===============================================================================
                                   Snowpeak                              [1007]
