Entering The Shrine 

Whenever you make your way to the forgotten temple, you want to be standing towards the edge of a ledge, and from here, you should be able to leap off of it instead of simply climbing down, as it gives you the option to do so. 

  1. As you jump down, open your Paraglider about two seconds into being afloat, turn back and head inside the tunnel directly below the ledge you were already standing on, and take care of your stamina usage.
