The Small Cave Shrine is located in the upper northeast corner of the lake. There you will find a small cave with a hut containing a digit puzzle (and luckily no enemies). The puzzle has eight dials, three of which you must interact with to find the solution.
Look for several yellow markers on the hut walls and the cave walls. These markings tell you which of the three dials to press to open the door.
The screenshot above provides the solution to the puzzle, but if you go clockwise starting with the top center (12 o’clock) switch, press:
- The fourth, sixth and seventh dial.
- The fourth dial has three icons and is located in the lower right corner.
- The sixth dial has a series of three squiggly lines and is located in the lower left corner.
- The seventh dial is above the sixth and has a curved line on it that looks a bit like a bird.
Hitting these switches in the correct order will solve the puzzle and open the door to the cage where you can now pick up the first of two stone heads.

Make your way through this section (and don’t forget to unlock the shortcut back to your boat) and fight your way through the enemies until you reach the ladder that leads to the area with the puzzle. Even if you haven’t finished off all the Ganados in the area, bringing up the puzzle screen will pause the action.

- Start with the top middle dial at 12 o’clock.
- Press the dials on either side of it.
- Press the dial just below at the bottom (6 o’clock).
