Then wait till nightfall. Simply sneak into the settlement and activate the tower.
Or you can do it in the way of true Hylian hero Link actually is. At this point, Link has 3 main abilities unlocked. Collect a few arrows and Fire Plants from the surroundings. Fuse some fast weapons including spears. Approach the settlement and kill the early enemies. Use dodge to activate Flurry Rush as much as you can.
Bokoblins will throw a spiked ball at Link on the bridge. Use the Recall ability on the ball to reverse its direction. Use fire arrows to take down the smaller enemies. Take out your best weapon and start chipping away at Blue Boss Bokoblin’s health bar.
Remember arrows targeted at the face do a lot of damage in addition to stunning the big foes. After defeating all the enemies in the area, go like a boss and interact with Hyrule Field Skyview Tower’s console to activate it.
Ride the Tower elevator to be thrown into the sky. Use your glider to come back down safely after acquiring the map of the surrounding areas.
