This small, corner ledge is where you end up whether you take the shortcut or the longer way round. Position Lara with the outer corner of the ledge behind her on the right.
Take a standing jump to the slightly higher ledge just around the corner.
Then take a carefully angled running past the overhanging rocks to the square ledge ahead on the right. Then immediately run into the hallway so Lara doesn't get squashed by still more falling rocks.
Once inside the hallway, you can see the PILLAR OF LIGHT ahead, but the gate in front of it doesn't open. Jump to grab the ladder on the right. Climb down...
...and follow the passage to some swinging burners. There are Desert Eagle clips in the first alcove on the right.
Even if she is crawling, Lara can be struck by the burner at its lowest point. So stay close to the right wall as you approach the clips. Then crawl back out along the same path.
Run carefully past the burners to the switch. Pull it to open the trapdoor above the ladder at the end of the passageway.
This trapdoor is on a slow timer, but you shouldn't have any trouble getting through before it closes.
At the top, turn around, jump over the open trapdoor (or wait for it to close and walk over it). Exit through through the small, blue gate, which opens as you approach. Continue back to the room with the PILLAR OF LIGHT and climb the stairs to the upper level.
