After your first brief entry into the CATACOMBS, shown in the previous section, you return to the same area of the COASTAL RUINS. Safety drop from the alcove onto the block below. Then drop or climb down the ladder into the pit beneath the dangling boulder.
Approach the step below the boulder from the side nearest the pulley. Climb onto the step and quickly hop back...
...to avoid being squashed as the boulder drops and rolls away.
- OR -
Instead, pick up the wooden TORCH lying on the step.
Then very carefully use the brazier to light it. If you don't get any closer than the seam between the tiles (marked with the broken line in this screenshot), Lara won't catch fire.
Stand below the pulley and jump straight up and down a few times until the rope burns away...
...dropping the boulder.
Go through the crawlspace that was hidden behind the boulder.
Drop down on the other side and use the CROWBAR to open another wrought iron gate.
Go through another raised crawlspace. Then follow the passageway on the other side into the CATACOMBS.
At the end of the passageway is a mall room with a movable pillar.
Pull it onto the brown block that you raised by pressing the square tile in the room above. (If you missed this, refer to the previous section.)
This will prop up the floor so it no longer sinks when you step on it. Return through the passageway and two crawlspaces to the pit with the boulder.
