The chest itself is located in the Chaas Qeta Shrine. You'll find this shrine on the island in the middle of the Necluda Sea, which is in the southeast corner of the map. Its location is highlighted in red in the image above. To reach the chest, you need to go 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 eastern side of the map. You will need to use bombs to blow up a rock face that hides this shrine. Once inside, there are no more challenges. You can just walk in and open the chest to get the climbing shoes.

Climber's Bandana
