Hidden chests in the Hades Challenge
When you get to the room where the big statue comes up and shines a light into the dark cave entrance-there are two huge statues on either side of the stairway leading up to that cave. Jump up on either side of the sides of the stairway and then onto the statue's bowl of lava of the statues. Shimmy around the lava bowl and to the right of the right side statue is a chest and to the left of the left side statue, there's another chest.
The jump onto the ledge with the chest is tricky and so far have not been able to do it with the L3 + X jump onto the ledge of the chest where the window is. If someone can figure out how to get onto these ledges, please let me know.
Also, there's a chest filled with red orbs above the platform you com out of and you step on the button thing and it initiated the statue thing to move. Jump on the next level above that platform, right above the button and break that wall-behind it is a chest filled with red orbs.
I've back tracked through the secret door back into this room from the "Blades of Hades" room because it's been so frustrating trying to balance on those beams and avoid the blades I decided to try to find a cheat or shortcut around it. I'm hoping I can somehow jump on one of the ledges from the Big statue room that lights up the dark cave. I'm desperate to skip the Blades of Hades room. I've seen a video on YouTube that skip it altogether but I can't figure out how to get my guy to jump up into the air using the poseidon's rage like the guy does on the video to jump up onto the rope way above that ledge with the chest with the red orbs. If anyone can tell me how to do that jump please let me know. I'm on the second level of the Poseidon's Rage.
