  • Climb back up and walk across the platform.

This next area is actually the final room, but there are a few parts to tackle. First, we’ll want to get the treasure chest you’ll see at the right when you enter the room. It took me a bit to figure this one out, but in the end, I used my Ascend ability to make it over. Here’s what you need to do to solve it.

  • To get the chest, grab the metal cube at the right of the entrance with your Ultrahand and attach it to the top of the metal piece in front of you, as shown above. 
  • Use your Ascend ability to come out on top of the metal cube.
  • Glide down to the Treasure Chest.
  • You’ll receive a Large Zonai Charge.

Now that you have the treasure chest, let’s solve the second puzzle in the TotK Musanokir Shrine.

  • Glide back to the main platform.
  • Detach the large metal cube from the top, and attach it to the hanging ball.
  • Grab the wooden post with your Ultrahand and attach it to the left side of the upper piece, so that it follows alongside the track.
  • Grab the large cube with your Ultrahand and swing it back, as shown above. 
  • The entire piece will gain momentum and the wooden pole will hit the target, opening the gate.
  • You can now leave and gain your Light Of Blessing!
