Default Tomb Raider - Chasm Shrine puzzle solution

I admit I did get stuck here for a while and thought my game had glitched, but persevered and figured it out. I would wager that this is perhaps the most taxing story progression related puzzle in the game. Agree or not, for those who are stuck here check the video. Obviously seasoned vets breezed passed this room with no problems, but spare a thought for those who are stuck.

I'll admit, I spent the most time on this puzzle and the one on the endurance. I didn't use survival instinct, so it took longer to find out what I could use.


At first I jumped in the hole

But if you think about it, it's quite easy.

Me too!

Was so frustrated because jumping from the bottom floor wouldn't work.

I felt like a total idiot... With that and the Hall of Ascension

Hmm.. It didn't take me too long to figure this one out actually.

Once I found both axe thingys I was able to work out what I was meant to do. I did however try to bust through the door first, then saw the fragile wall above it. Once that was done I knew I had to swing it again to get enough momentum. And I knew there wasn't enough slack(?) on the rope for her to reach the opening. So I lowered it again...

I was stuck here too. I had raised the cage and was trying to jump from the top and it was impossible to grab the cage.

This Didn't take me long, really...
The puzzle that had me stuck the most was the one at the Endurance. I didn't know that jumping onto the ladders would move that thing!

Yeah that one confused me at first too, took me a while to figure out exactly which path it was meant to follow.
