Just past the start of the game. When you see two blocks moving up and down ahead (for the first time!) you're almost at the area where you can get this achievement. Before moving on Save!. The Refinery isn't far.

It is advisable but not necessary, to make a test run to find the spot where you need to jump 'in the wrong' way first.

- Jump across the gap with your shadow power. Follow the corner and enter the room ahead.

This is the refinery.

- Run to the slope that is a little to the right. Ignore the Thralls jumping at you, and slide down. The time starts ticking now.

The next part can be a little confusing but it should be clear when you play the game.

- Follow the path until you jump on the first pole. Jump on the little island. Jump on the second pole. Shadow run the next rock vein. Jump right and shadow run on the other rock vein.

But DO NOT jump to the ledge a bit higher. (It is advisable to make a test run to find this spot first. Do not forget to save before this run.)

- Instead when your so high as possible on the rock vein. Jump to the right in the "Eitr lake". You will die, but the achievement will unlock.

After you've got the achievement you still can get the goodies in this area.

If you don't want to use this glitch you can also try to be really fast, but in my experience that is really frustrating.
