1From the yellow skulls, proceed forward until you reach a wooden platform
2Jump down & land into a pool of water
3To the left you'll find the cave opening

5Keep going until you automatically slide down, jump & grapple onto the wall to get to the other side safely
6Rappel downwards and swing onto the ledge in front of you
7Jump across the gap to hang onto the ledge
8While hanging, move to your right then jump & grapple onto the wall next to you
9Crawl through the small opening, be wary of a wolf jumping out at you
10Try to jump across but you'll automatically fall into a wolves den instead
11Eliminate the wolves attacking you
12Move towards the fire & tether the rope point to another point located on the other side
13Move across the fiery ridge and grapple the wall in front of you to move up & find the Petroleum Deposit base camp
14Move forward into the area where huge gusts of wind are blowing
15You cannot cross via the log due to wind so just climb up the ledge instead
16Move forward to find the fire-lit pendulum puzzle room
17The first pendulum switch is to your right, turn it counterclock-wise to open the shutters & swing the first pendulum
18Wait until the pendulum reaches the bridge before jumping on it & then jump onto the other side when it swings to the left
19You'll find the 2nd shutter switch here, turn it clockwise to start moving the spiked pendulum
20Jump onto the bridge & across it to go to the right side of the room
21Move towards the fire & wait for the spiked pendulum to swing near you
22Rope-pull the pendulum to angle its swing down onto the barricade blocking the bridge
23Make your way back to the 2nd shutter switch to stop the spiked pendulum from swinging
24Move across the bridge then jump onto the left side of the room to find a 3rd pendulum stuck onto the wall
25Jump, hang, & move to the right of the pendulum to get to the platform on its other side
26Tether the 3rd pendulum to the spiked pendulum then use the rope go back
27Go back to the 2nd shutter switch to open the shutters & let the spiked pendulum drag the 3rd pendulum out of the way
28Return to the platform where the 3rd pendulum was stuck & turn the 3rd switch clockwise to open the shutters
28The wind will blow the fire away so go back to the bridge, climb up to the altar to activate it & receive your reward

11. Wait For The Prompt When Wolf Attacks

When a wolf pins you down, use your movement controls to shake it off then wait for the prompt to instantly kill the wolf.

22. Rope-Pull Spiked Pendulum When It's Near

When the spiked pendulum reaches the highest angle when it is nearest you, that's the right time to rope-pull it.
