Then use your grapple to climb onto the wooden platform to get the document. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

DOCUMENT 31

The next two documents are in the Baths of Kitezh Challenge Tomb. If it's your first time in that area, follow the main walkthrough.

DOCUMENT 33

The last document is on a high ledge on the southeast side of the clearing in front of the bear's cave and Baths of Kitezh Challenge Tomb entrance.
