  • Upon entering the chamber, turn right. Jump up onto the platform above next to the ruined statue.
  • Once up there, turn right. At the end, you’ll see a grapple point to reach the left side of the chamber. Jump across.
  • When you get over there, you’ll first want to knock the barrier off the edge on the right. That’ll let you go up and down with ease.
  • Then, head forward until you reach the ruined statue holding the Twilight Stone.
  • Use Atreus’ arrow (aim with L2 and fire with Square) to break the barrier off of the statue’s wings.
  • Pull the wings to the left (press O when prompted and then move the left joystick to the left). 
  • This will reveal a breakable circle on the right side of the statue. Throw your axe (aim with L2, throw with R1/2) and destroy it. 
  • Once the wing is broken free, move the statue all the way to the right.
  • Then, aim at the Twilight Stone held by the statue. When you see a blue beam, throw your axe at it. This will break the left wing.
  • Next, move the statue all the way to the left, bringing the Twilight Stone closer to the floor. Jump back down to the lower floor of the chamber.
  • Climb back up to the right side of the chamber and turn left. Head down a little bit until you can see the ruined statue and the Twilight Stone. 
  • Aim your axe at the Twilight Stone until you see a blue beam. Throw it to finally open the door.
