  • Head forward to the right to the pool of water there.
  • Use the Cryonis Rune to create a vertical pillar to climb and reach the ledge above you.
  • On this ledge, look to the right toward the waterfall. Use the Cryonis Rune once again to create a horizonal ice pillar to reach the next ledge.
  • Turn back around when you land on this ledge. The chest is just above you now. Shatter the pillar you just made.
  • Create 3 pillars just above one another to reach the ledge above you. Inside the chest is a Purple Rupee.
  • Jump off and glide up the stairs that you see from the chest beyond the platform you were on.
  • Go up to the top of the 3 sets of stairs and look to the right. You will see some ramps and a see-saw mechanism.
  • Using Cryonis Rune you need to direct the Shiekah Sphere into the reciprocal past the see-saw mechanism.
  • There are a number of ways to arrange your 3 ice blocks to get the Sphere into its place.
  • Have one blocking it from rolling across to the next room and forcing it drop down to the see-saw mechanism below.
  • A second block needs to stop the sphere from rolling the wrong way on the see-saw mechanism, directing it to the right. This can take a sphere or two for the physics to work properly depending on placement.
  • A third block needs to go between the see-saw mechanism and the reciprocal. This will let the sphere to roll into its place.
  • This will trigger the gate letting you reach the Monk inside this shrine.
  • Run down the stairs (or use the Paraglider) to reach the newly opened portion of the room.
  • Go inside this section and turn to the right.
  • Climb the stairs and interact with the Monk.

Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • The final Ice puzzle can take a moment for things to line up properly. Take your time with the placement of the pillars.
