Climb the wooden ledge just inside and have Lara grapple the golden ring on the other side of the room. Totec can then tightrope walk across the spikes.
Position Lara on the square pad near the entrance. This retracts one set of spikes on Totec's side so he can roll the LARGE BALL (8/8) onto the clear tile in the middle of the spike field.
Move Totec onto the square pad on his side of the room, retracting the spikes on Lara's side, so she can grab the ball and roll it onto her pressure pad.
With Totec on one pad and the ball on the other, Lara can safely cross the spikes.
Have each character pull one of the 2 handles, raising the gate so you can get the AMMO UPGRADE.
Totec should then return to his pad so Lara can cross back to the other side of the room and climb onto the wooden ledge.
Grapple the golden ring again and Totec can tightrope walk to safety.
Roll the ball out of the room, down the stairs, and into the chute, which leads to the ROUND CAGE below.
