The chest piece itself is located in the Chaas Qeta Shrine. You will find this Shrine on the island in the middle of the Necluda Sea, which is on the map's southeastern corner. Its location is highlighted in red on the image above. To reach the chest, you must make it through the Shrine and defeat the guardian at the end. The chest will then be available in front of the Spirit.

The Climbing Boots are located in the Tahno O'ah Shrine, which is directly Southeast of Mount Lanayru, on the map's eastern side. You will need to use bombs to blow up a rock wall that is hiding this Shrine. Once you're inside, there are no further challenges. You can simply walk in and open the chest to obtain the Climbing boots.
