|22||Rope-pull the pendulum to angle its swing down onto the barricade blocking the bridge|
|23||Make your way back to the 2nd shutter switch to stop the spiked pendulum from swinging|
|24||Move across the bridge then jump onto the left side of the room to find a 3rd pendulum stuck onto the wall|
|25||Jump, hang, & move to the right of the pendulum to get to the platform on its other side|
|26||Tether the 3rd pendulum to the spiked pendulum then use the rope go back|
|27||Go back to the 2nd shutter switch to open the shutters & let the spiked pendulum drag the 3rd pendulum out of the way|

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