The Katah Chuki Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name A Minor Test of Strength,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Katah Chuki Shrine is surrounded by rocky outcrops of the Quarry Ruins in Hyrule Field. As Link enters the Ancient Shrine, he is greeted by its Monk, Katah Chuki.[2]

Themes and Navigation

Katah Chuki Shrine features a large, central chamber which acts as an arena. As Link approaches the center of the arena, a Guardian Scout II wielding a Guardian Spear will rise from a pit to challenge Link.

In order to reach the Monk's Pedestal, Link must defeat the Guardian Scout II. Doing so will cause the portcullis in the back of the chamber to rise. When Link interacts with Katah Chuki, the Monk will give him a Spirit Orb for overcoming the Trial.[3] Following this, Katah Chuki will wish Link well and fade away.[4]

Behind the portcullis, Link can find a stone Treasure Chest. A Royal Halberd can be recovered from inside.
