I tried getting help on another board, but no one seemed to help me enough to get me through it. Maybe someone here can better explain this before I throw the game out the window. :mad:

I have finished everything in the Hall of Seasons in the lower part of it. I have worked my way all the way up to the top. I climbed the side of the wall where the floor is broken. I then pulled the lever and worked my way back to the wall you can move and get stronger. I then go back to the ledge with the lever. After numerous attempts, I finally find the right spot to get over to the green platform. I had to find out that you go toward her left up the side of the wall and she gets to a point where she gets her strength back and I can monkey swing over to the platform. The problem I have is after that. I walk to the edge of the platform like I would on a diving board. I jump up and grab the ceiling and monkey swing forward. I see where there is a 90 degree turn to the left that you have to make and I do that and end up where she stops and turns around and begins climbing up. Now here is the problem. On the few occasions she gets to the top without running out of strength and falling she doesn't do anything. She gets as high as she can climb and then just falls. I beleive I was told to go to the left. I tried pushing to go to the left, nothing happened. I tried right, nothing happened. I even tried to backflip off of the wall to see if I could get up there, but of course nothing happened. How do you get her to go up to the area where she is supposed to go? It almost seems like she is not strong enough to make it, but I don't think they would have allowed me to make it this far is she weren't strong enough. The best I have done so far is to make the turn and she pulls herself up and uses both her arms and legs and I get 2 footsteps up the wall before my strength starts to flash. That usually gets me to the top, but she is pretty much all the way to the right at the top and she doesn't make any effort to move anywhere except falling down to the bottom. With all of the glitches in this game reported by others, I hope mine doesn't have some kind of problem. I am a Tomb Raider veteran and have never had a problem like this before. Here are some pictures that I took from my digital camera to show where I am at. Just click on the link below. The first is the direction I am facing when I begin to leave the green platform. The second is where I am at when she turns around and climbs up. The third is when she is at the top and falls down. The pictures are not the greatest due to movement on the screen making the picture some what blurry. The only thing I can figure out is in the second picture I am not over far enough to the right, but I don't have enough strength to go over there and make it to the top. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is another ledge higher up than the one with the leaver. It is along the wall to the far left. This is where you start the long climb from. Face strait out and you will hang climb forward and hang a left ASAP. You should have just enough strength to get up there.

Hi KyCat. I had this problem too. I would get to the top, I then I wouldn't move. I finally decided to take a leap of faith: At the top, when I wouldn't move I did a backflip off by holding down jump. This landed me square on the platform and I was finally able to move on. Give it a shot! Save in a different slot first and do a backflip, see if it works for you. Good Luck!

You must have missed it, but I mentioned that I got over to that green platform already. It is going from there up to the top that isn't working.

Do you push up when you hit the backflip? Am I waiting to long to push it? I was waiting til I got to the top when I did push the jump button.

Oops........ so you did....... Sorry bout that. Yah, a lot of people have had a hard time with this wall. I myself had to give it more than a dozen tries.

She can't be hanging when you do a backflilp, she's gotta have her feet up on the wall too. Then you just push down jump (the O button) and she should flip off. When I did this I would say my feet were pretty much directly in line with the lip of the hole she is climbing into. Hope that helps.
