Default Is there a way to access more than on backup save on console?

Long story short, I went out of bounds in St. John and made my way through the combat areas all over again. Enemies respawned in the cane field, so I took them out and made my way to the helicopter and, as per usual, the mudslide is happening again. There's just one problem: something vital is missing from the event that is preventing Lara from being able to outrun the mudslide.

I've gone back to the main menu and tried to pull up a backup save, but the only one I see available doesn't take me back far enough. Is there a way to access more or is my save file broken forever and I'll have to write over it with a new game?

Oh my, that's a weird bug!

How do you access such zones though? I'd like to try (or not, if it breaks my game)

It's a long story that I'll probably dedicate an entire post to (I don't want to detract from my question here). I'll also have pictures in the Photo Mode thread here soon. Suffice it to say, I went out of bounds did some rooftop hopping in order to get there.

You can go out of bounds by climbing the truck at the library(for example). From that point on, you have to carefully navigate to a normally closed area.

-

There are 3 kind of save files:
- automatic save by the latest campfire/checkpoint
-the above can be saved automatically to a backup save
- manual save

So if I remember correctly there are no campfires on the combat route in San Juan, only checkpoints; I think you lost that progress...unless, you've made a manual save after completing the game.

I am interested in seeing out of bounds screenshots.

Here ya go! It's all thanks to LateRaider that I was even able to do this!

EDIT: Here are some shots of what I'm talking about. When Lara reaches this point...



...her next action is to perform a jump after passing through the building.



Unfortunately, when she goes to jump, there's nothing for her grapple ax to latch onto...



...so she falls into this pit and dies.



And then she's back at the beginning to do it all over again. So, if anyone can help me to access an earlier back up save file than the one the console provides, I'd be very much appreciative.

No, I haven't made any manual saves. I don't think it would have worked, anyway, as I triggered the mudslide all over again.
