  2. Open the flaming device to let loose the flames to burn down the debris blocking the passage.
  3. In the next chamber, the second column without the lever can be Rope Tethered to the first column with the lever; by rotating the levered column, the second will also rotate.
  4. The key is to rotate both such that the channel leading from the top of the stairs leads to the pattern at the first column, flowing to the pattern around the second column, and then to the obstructed passage.
  5. Once lined up, proceed back to the top of the stairs and Rope Tether + pull the level to the left of the mechanism. This enables oil to flow into the channels.
