Trial of the Eagle (part 3)

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Use a rope arrow to pull down the wooden barrier to the left of the opening in the wall.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Behind it is a rope-wrapped metal ring. If you use a rope arrow to pull it...

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
...the nearby door opens; however it won't stay open for long.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
To make it stay open, rope-pull the ring...

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
...then run to the rope-wrapped post on the ledge that juts out toward the waterfall.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Stand near the post and shoot another rope arrow into the ring...

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
...anchoring it to the post. Now the door should stay open.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Move to the rotating pole with the sails and shoot another rope arrow through the open doorway into the rope coil on the center shaft.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
This raises another set of sails, and the section of the mechanism on this level begins to turn.

Step out onto the ledge overlooking the inside of the tower, and you'll notice one of the metal bars is stuck on some broken blocks near the rotating ladders. You can still reach the nearest dangling ladder, though, so jump over to it now.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
When Lara grabs the ladder, the machine grinds forward, knocking the blocks out of the way and destroying the second rotating ladder. Lara remarks that she'll need to find another way up.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Pull up onto the beam above the ladder but don't step forward yet. Wait until the beam Lara is standing on moves past the twirling bar with obsidian spikes protruding from the center shaft.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Then hurry along the beam toward the center, scramble up the wooden boards, and grab the handhold above.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Then quickly scramble up once more to a higher handhold. Lara is safe here.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Climb around to the left then out along the jutting beam until you can pull up.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Walk along the beam toward the outer wall. Jump forward and latch onto the climbing wall. Climb upward and to the right, then jump to the next section of climbable wall.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Climb up and around to the right, and onto the ledge above.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Loot a bird's nest for feathers. Then walk out onto the narrow beam toward the center shaft.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Wait for one of the red-tiled panels with white handholds to rotate around toward you, then jump and grab it. Climb to the higher handhold on the red panel.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Then, when the red panel moves a little to the right, so there's a solid handhold above, jump up to grab it.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Pause for a moment until there's a wooden panel with handholds above. Jump up to grab it...

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
...then quickly scramble up the boards so the twirling spikes don't knock Lara down.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Now you can take your time. Climb up then out along the beam toward the red sail.

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
Pull up onto the beam above the sail and, if you like, move onto the center platform...

Rise of the Tomb Raider screenshot
...to enjoy the view for a bit.
