A locked gate in Vanaheim may prevent you from accessing the southern part of this world in God of War Ragnarok. On this page of the guide we show how to unlock the river passage which neighbors the southern part of Cliffside Ruins. Moreover, we supply a walkthrough to the puzzle that you come across when attempting to cross it.

Position yourself where you can see the chain covered by red vines. Your task is to remove the vines.

You need to set the vines on fire, but they are out of reach of your Blades - God of War Ragnarok: Unlocking the gate to southern Vanaheim (Cliffside Ruins) - Completing 100% of maps - God of War Ragnarok Guide

You need to set the vines on fire, but they are out of reach of your Blades. Ask your companion to create 3 seals next to each other - they must interlock and reach the vines. In addition, the seal closest to you has to be in range of Blades of Chaos. Equip Blades and hit the first seal. The strike should carry over the seals and finally set the vines on fire.

If there is no chain reaction, it is likely that the seals are too far apart. Delete them (press X while aiming) and create new ones.

Once the obstacle is gotten rid of, go down, reach the chain and climb up - God of War Ragnarok: Unlocking the gate to southern Vanaheim (Cliffside Ruins) - Completing 100% of maps - God of War Ragnarok Guide

Once the obstacle is gotten rid of, go down, reach the chain and climb up. In the new area you'll find a rune creation spot - it is shown in the screenshot.

If the said object remains inaccessible, progress in the main story until you learn how to interact with runes.
