How to Get to the Citadel Sub-Camp

Video Explanation

Through a Cave from Area 5

From the high plateau in Area 5, head northeast, and you'll find the Sub-camp through a cave. From the map, it looks like you should be able to reach it easily from Area 4, but the camp is more accessible via Area 5. You'll know you've found the entrance to said cave when you see a Bonepile.

Rare Endemic Life in the Citadel


MH Rise Sunbreak - Citadel Gargolda

Gargolda is the rare endemic life in the Citadel. It's located around the cliffs of Area 4, near the 2nd Relic Record. You'll only be able to find it near sunset, so you'll have to wait a few minutes after daytime. Take a picture of it to register it in your Hunter's Notes!
