  • Description 

    Located in Chaos Canyon so the weather is always volatile. Be prepared with a rain jacket, warm (down) jacket, pants, shorts, sun lotion, bug spray.

    Getting There 

    There are two ways into Upper Chaos. Going left around the large and tall boulder field will deposit you at the Meadow and near Eternia. Moving right around the field will leave you at the Riddles Boulder. Identified by Terrorism Arete (a striking streaked boulder that juts with distinction just to the left of the Riddles Boulder.
