At the start, drop down to the left and go to the right to find a switch on the left side. Flip it then turn around, climb up the rocky stairs to the right and press the switch on the right. Drop down to the ground in front, cross the lowered bridge and go around the structure in front to find its entrance. Inside, use the blue switch on one side to raise the floor, allowing access to the blue key behind you as the floor finishes raising. Flip the skull switches to the sides to lower the pillars holding the yellow and red keys, then press the satyr face switch to lower the floor again.

Pick up the red key to the right, then turn right and use the blue switch in front twice. Move to the right, then collect the yellow key on the right and flip the blue switch on the left twice. Take the teleporter on the right to arrive at the bridge, then drop down to the left side again. Move right and press the red switch to the right, then move to the left and use the yellow switch on the right. Enter the teleporter on the left to arrive at the bridge again, then move forward and step on the red contraption to exit the level.
