A Soldier's March: Walkthrough

The start of The Climb is to the west of The Bulwark. You're going to be dealing with difficult weather conditions in this quest, so remember to use your Focus with R3 and keep an eye out for painted walls and signposts that signify The Climb. Once you've made it a short way up the route, you'll encounter a camp, where Wekatta will tell you that there are two missing participants, including Penttoh.

Use your Focus to highlight any handholds and navigate The Climb. The first participant you find will be in a fighter with a Stalker, which you can bring down using Shock elements. Keep climbing in search of Penttoh (you can highlight his tracks using the Focus). At one point you'll need to use your Shieldwing to glide from one side of the mountain to the other.

When you find Penttoh, he'll be fighting Leaplashers, which you should be familiar with by now. Take them out and then climb alongside him. You'll need to split up at one point in order to push down a tree to create a makeshift bridge. Then once you reach the summit you'll fight a Frostclaw, which is particularly susceptible to Fire and Shock damage. Climb a little further to finish the arc, then Shieldwing your way back to Wekatta to complete the side quest.
