Early Lanayru Province

Discovered by Peteyboo


Instead of going around Eldin and taking the long way to Lanayru it is possible to clip through the gate on Hyrule field by using Epona or wolf.

How To

Eponaless Lanayru Gate Clip

Discovered by Rachel Bryk, Sidehop Method by Arbiter Anomalies

By bonking the gate with either a B-Attack or a Jump Attack and then sidehopping into the gate as wolf it is easy to clip through after a few tries. A B-Attack is recommended over a jump attack, to execute this trick have a slight angle away from the gate as shown in the video so when you hold left while targetting you get the action command to "Jump" which is sidehop. Once you have the angle, hold target and left then press B to B-Attack the gate, after this start mashing A while holding left to sidehop, which a small amount of luck you should clip through. In a run you would either ignore the bokoblins by dashing past them and quickly targeting or kill them with B-Attacks and a spin.

The original method was to clip through the gate by bonking into the gate and then dashing through on the right frame. This is insanely hard to pull off RTA as it is frame perfect, the frame can vary every time and sometimes might not be possible due to the RNG of the gate swinging.

Clipping Through the Lanayru Gate

  1. Get on Epona and ride over to the Western gate which leads to Lake Hylia and the Lanaryu Province.
  2. Align Epona at a slight acute angle with the gate (the less space between Epona and the gate, the more likely you are to clip).
  3. Sidehop into the acute angle and roll into the gate.
  4. If you setup Epona's alignment properly you should either:

    • Immediately roll through the gate.
    • Crash into the gate, and as you stand back up, get pushed through the gate by Epona.

After voyaging part-way into the province, you will be warped to the Great Bridge of Hylia, by the Twilit Bulblin cutscene.


  • For now clipping through the gate as human results in a soft lock later cause we cannot do Early Master Sword and therefore not transform in Lanayru which means bug collection is impossible.
  • Clipping through as wolf allows a faster start to Lanayru Twilight, and the most routes use Eldin's wolf to finish most of Lanayru Twilight's pre-Vessel parts during Eldin Twilight, to save about 30 seconds.
