Great Plateau Region

Great Plateau Region

Ke Namut Shrine

This Shrine is located in a colder area of the Great Plateau
Here is the specific location of the Keh Namut Shrine

Keh Namut Shrine

Once complete, this Shrine will grant you the Cryonis rune for your Sheikah Slate. Cryonis lets you create ice blocks out of water, which you can then climb. You can even create multiple ice blocks, letting you create your own stepping stones. Swimming is quite the chore in this game so Cryonis is a welcomed addition.

If the holographic ice cube shows its full height, you are allowed to put an ice cube there
And yes, they are climbable!

Press the L shoulder button to pick out where you want to create your ice block. Press [A] to make your block and use it to climb up to the next platform.

You can slip right under now
Don't get hit by their homing missile, and don't forget to collect their dropped parts afterwards.

As you go forward you will be stopped by a gate above another body of water. Look carefully and you will see there is a gap between the gate and the water. Create an ice block right underneath it to lift the gate up, and walk under the gate to continue. You will be stopped by another Guardian Scout. As with before, it doesn’t have much health and only has one attack.

Create an ice block to close the gap
Then grab your loot and let's keep going

Once you’ve made your way down the hallway, look to your left to see the telltale glow of a treasure chest. Use Cryonis to make a block and then climb up it to get to the platform. The treasure chest will give you a Traveler’s Spear.

As you can see, there is currently no way to get up there
But with some clever Cryonis now you can advance forward

The next chamber of this shrine has what looks like a see-saw. To scale the wall, you will need to use Cryonis to make an ice block that will lift up the plank. So make an ice block and put it under the left or right side of the plank. You will then be able to walk up it like no big deal!

Make your way to the right and you will meet with the Keh Namut monk and claim your final Spirit Orb.
