Secrets: 1*

DIRT ROAD: Follow the road to the big doors with the "Do Not Enter" signs. As you 
approach, 2 blue robed baddies emerge from the rocks on the right side of the road. 
When you kill them, one drops a SILVER KEY. Use it to open the smaller door on the 

WALLED AREA WITH LEDGES AND LEVERS: There are 2 more enemies inside and some shotgun 
shells in an alcove in the far left corner. Jump over to either of the 2 levers in 
the corners of this area, taking care not to fall into either of the deep pits. 
After you use both levers, the door in the northwest corner opens and one of Von 
Croy's assassins enters. Kill him, then go through the door you just opened.

(NOTE: Now that you've got the crossbow—or should have it anyway—you might try using 
poisoned arrows on the assassins. They seem to get past the whirling knives quite 

EXCAVATION PITS: Approach the pit on the right (north). Slide down the slope onto 
the ledge inside the pit. Jump to the ledge ahead on the left, and from there take a 
running jump to grab the flat spot on the north rim of the pit. Pull up and continue 
forward (north) to the next pit. There's a wooden door on the right, but you can't 
open it yet.

From the edge of the second pit, take a standing jump down to the ledge with the 
large medipak. When you land, another guy in blue robes appears on the north rim of 
the pit. Kill him. Then take a running jump from the medipak ledge to the next ledge 
to the north (below where the bad guy just stood). Climb out of the pit. Kick open 
the gray door (Action key) and enter the building.

STORAGE BUILDING: One of the crates near the door contains Uzi clips. The others are 
empty. Push the metal shelf unit out of the way. Shoot the grate. (Pistols worked 
fine for me, though others have reported problems here. You might want to try 
shooting from different angles.) Crawl through and kill another enemy in the next 

Shoot the crate in the corner and pick up a METAL BLADE. Move the shelf unit on the 
left twice to the left. Move the other shelf out of the corner and pick up secret #1 
(63/70) from the floor where the second shelf was. This is the SHOTGUN (or shells if 
you already have the weapon). (NOTE: It's fairly easy to overlook this pick-up in 
the dark corner.) Pick up some more shotgun shells on the floor to the right of the 
door. Push the button to open the door.

EXCAVATION PITS AGAIN: There are 2 bad guys waiting outside. After dispatching them, 
head to the left. (You emerge through the wooden door between the two pits you 
crossed earlier. Now you want to head back to the south.) At the first pit, take a 
running jump back to the ledge on the right, a standing jump to the next ledge and 
another standing jump out of the pit.

Now you're back at the door where you entered from the WALLED AREA WITH LEDGES AND 
LEVERS. Continue past that door (south) to the next pit. Slide or jump down onto the 
ledge inside the pit on the left. Take a running jump to the ledge ahead (also on 
the left side of the pit). Turn right and take a running jump to the ledge in the 
opposite (southwest) corner. From there you can jump out of the pit.

You'll see the "Do Not Enter" doors to the left. Go to the right (west) around the 
corner, which is the left paw of the SPHINX. Go between the paws and approach the 
white stone.

Cut scene: Lara kneels near the monument and examines it closely.

Walk around the right front paw (the sphinx's right) toward the next pit (to the 
west). Beyond the pit lurk 2 more assassins. You can take them out from this side 
using the crossbow with laser sight and an explosive arrow or two. (Or, to conserve 
ammo, use the laser sight bug, described in the COASTAL RUINS walkthrough.) Then 
take your time crossing the pit: Slide down the slope near the paw to the trapezoid-
shaped ledge. You can then take a running jump to the next ledge on the right side 
of the pit if you line it up very carefully. If you're not sure of your jumping 
skills, jump across to the ledge on the left side, then to the ledge farther ahead 
on the right. Climb out of the pit.

To the left of the door you'll find either a crate containing a WOODEN HANDLE or the 
handle itself (if you blew up the crate when you killed the assassins). Pick it up. 
Then climb onto the square block near the sphinx's paw. Take a standing jump up onto 
the paw. Walk to the end to get some shotgun shells then slide down on the side near 
the white monument.

Combine the METAL BLADE and WOODEN HANDLE to make (ta da!) a SHOVEL. Use the shovel 
in the cracked area of ground in front of the monument to start digging.

Cut scene: Lara digs a rather large hole. (Where does this girl get all that 

Drop into the hole and walk down the slope to end the level.
