Down the cave you will find three rune switches, to activate them you will have to aim basic cast at them. Doing so will unlock the gate and reveal part of a bridge. You will be met by more spiders on your way, continue until the path splits in two. You can crouch through the tunnel to reach a spider cave with a chest.

Leave the cave and head downhill, and you will reach a second split. Take the right way first, and defeat more spiders, you can also find a chest here. Cast and hold Accio on the platform to pull it towards you, jump on it and do this again but aim to the other ledge to make the platform move. There is another chest to be found here.

Head back to the last split and take the other way, here you can three more rune switches. Use basic cast on all three of them to open a second gate and reveal more of the previously found bridge. Go through the gate and crouch under the rock, and after it on the right side there is a ledge, climb it to find another chest.

Continue along to the right, and you will drop down, and you will find another platform and use Accio on it towards you. Jump on the platform. Note the three hooks: one on each side and on in front of you. Use Accio on the right one to reach one chest, then a spider cave and finally, another chest.

Return to the platform, and use the hook that is in front of you (this was previously on your left). Climb up the ledge and you will find another chest. Return to the platform and now use the hook on your left (previously in front of you) and continue towards that path. There will be more spiders on your path and another chest on the ledge. 

On your left there is another chest.

If you stand with your back to the hill you just came from, you will notice three openings, two on the right and one of the left. Head to the first opening on your right and use Accio to ride the platform to the different ledges alongside your path, to find up to four chests in the area.

Return to the main room and head right, and you will drop down into a watery area to find even more spiders. After defeating the smaller ones, two more will appear.

When you are done with all spiders, head under the gate to find a rune switch. You can find the other two rune switches at both sides of the gate. Quickly cast Basic Cast on all of them to reveal the third part of the bridge. There is another chest under the gate. 

On the other side of the bridge, interact Richard Jackdaw's skeleton to collect the missing pages.
