The first drawbridge you encounter is fairly simple to lower. Aim at the torch on the left next to the red vines. This will cause Freya to target the brazier and shoot a fire arrow at it. This will ignite the red vines and reveal a switch. Throw your axe at the switch on the left, then at the one on the right. This will lower the drawbridge and let you progress.

Not long after, you will encounter a second drawbridge. This one is a little harder to solve, but the methods remain mostly the same. Turn to your right and find the pendulum with two braziers. Use your axe to hit the switch and release it. Once it comes to t rest, have Freya target the left and middle portions of the pendulum with her magic.

Use your Blades of Chaos to move the pendulum to the right, catching the right brazier on fire. This will ignite the entire pendulum and the brazier on the left beside the red vines. Have Freya target and shoot this brazier, and it will burn the red vines.

Return to the drawbridge and throw the Leviathan Axe at the two switches on the drawbridge. This will drop the bridge and let you progress through Pilgrim's Landing.
