You can find the second Lyngbakr binding by returning to the area you fought the Draugr, to the right of where you climbed up. Eliminate the enemies here, and then look for a chain opposite the golden rocks on the right side of the wall. Climb it. On your left at the top is another climbing section for an optional area for a chest and a Kvasir poem. If you want to ignore that, from the chain, go left of the Lore Marker, and grapple over to the other side using the hook.

Climb up on your left, and cut the last binding with your chain. Once done, head left, jump over the gap, and slide down the rope. At the bottom, break the lock with your axe. Open the chest to the right of the rope, remove the wooden barricade with your chain, and kick down the climbing chain on the left as you go through. Slide down the chain, get into the boat, and head towards Lyngbakr's eye for The Weight of Chains Favor being completed.
